Students seeking financial aid to cover their educational cost at SCU can seek federal loans, participate in federal work study programs and/or apply for scholarships like the Alumni Scholarship Program, SCU Awards and Lois & E. Maylon Drake Scholarship among several others.
Students at SCU have many financial assistance opportunities available to them in order to cover their educational expenses. It is the policy of the Financial Aid Office to assist our students as much as possible to afford their education. Basically, there are three different types of aid available:
Federal loans are low interest, need and non-need based in nature. These loans must be repaid once a student leaves the University and are processed every eight months (every two trimesters).
Federal Work-Study is realized through on and off-campus employment. These need-based funds must be earned through authorized work experience.
Scholarships exist for those who demonstrate academic merit and financial need.
