    Federal Financial Aid Updates

    Students must continue to maintain minimum program enrollment requirements to receive aid.

    • Current Pell Grant awards should not be affected.
    • Current Federal Direct Loan awards should not be affected.

    Federal Direct Loans

    All borrowers with federally held student loans will automatically have their interest rates set to 0% for a period of at least 60 days. In addition, each of these borrowers will have the option to suspend their payments for at least two months to allow them greater flexibility during the national emergency. This will allow borrowers to temporarily stop their payments without worrying about accruing interest.

    Visit StudentAid.gov/coronavirus for forthcoming details.

    Verification documentation for 2019-20 and/or 2020-21 can be submitted via U.S. Mail, fax at 402-437-2402, or by using the SCC financial aid secure drop box.
