    Diploma Programs with Reduced Financial Aid Eligibility

    Federal regulations [34CFR 668.8(k) and (l)] mandate that programs not leading to a degree, and all the courses within the program are not fully transferable to a higher degree, can only partially be paid by federal student aid. A specific federal formula determines the number of credits allowed to be paid by financial aid. At SCC, those programs and the number of credits eligible for federal financial aid are:

    ProgramNumber of Credits in the ProgramNumber of Credits Eligible for Financial AidNumber of Credits Not Paid

    So, what does this mean?

    If you enroll in one of the above-mentioned diploma programs, federal financial aid will not pay for the entire program. You will be responsible for the tuition and fees for the number of credits listed in the “Number of Credits Not Paid” column.
