University description (as per official university website)
Solano Community College, also known as SCC, is a two-year institution of higher learning located in Fairfield, Solano County, California, United States. It is part of California's public community college system. SCC was established in 1945 as Vallejo Junior College. It was part of the Vallejo City Unified School District until 1967, when it founded itself as a countywide institution.
SCC comprises a main campus and two satellite campuses, one in Vacaville and another in Vallejo. The college also occupies space at other locations when the three campuses are unable to accommodate classes. The main campus is located in Fairfield and is spread across an area of over 190 acres. It was completed in 1971.
Many graduates of Solano Community College have gone on to become famous. Some notable alumni are Joe Carnahan, independent film director; Casey Sheehan, army specialist and son of Cindy Sheehan; and Sylvester (Sly) Stewart, musician and creator of the famous funk group Sly & the Family Stone.
Special Note on Financial Aid Eligibility
All applicants must be a U.S. citizen or eligible non-citizen.
Students attending both high school and Solano Community College are not eligible to receive Financial Aid.
Because the U.S. Department of Education requires a degree or certificate program to be at least six months in length, students in Fire Technology (formally known as Fire Science Academy), Emergency Medical Technician, Special Manicuring Program, and Esthetics Program do not qualify for federal student aid.
All applicants who do not have a high school diploma, a GED, or who have not passed the high school proficiency test must pass the SCC Ability to Benefit (ATB) test.
Students under the age of 18 who possess a high school diploma, GED, or who have passed the high school proficiency test will be required to meet with the Dean of Special Services and the Dean of Counseling.
All male students 18 years or older must be registered with the selective service or must be on active duty to satisfy this requirement.
Continuation on financial aid programs is based on financial eligibility and the student maintaining satisfactory academic progress. Students not meeting the academic standard will lose their eligibility until they meet the academic conditions required.
