The Student Financial Aid Program is designed to assist deserving students in meeting the costs of attending Surry Community College. Financial assistance includes several types of aid: grants, scholarships, and student employment. Financial aid awards may include one or more of these. Only students who have been accepted for admission will be offered financial assistance. An enrolled student must reapply in order to receive aid during the second year of attendance.
Anyone interested in financial aid information may contact the Financial Aid Office which is located in the Reeves Building. Application packets are available which explain the opportunities and responsibilities in more detail. All financial assistance is awarded without regard to the student's race, religion, national origin, age, sex, or disability.
Surry Community College requires satisfactory academic progress of all students receiving financial aid. For complete details of the financial aid requirements, refer to the College Catalog.
Withdrawal from classes after aid is accessed can result in repayment of aid to school. See the college catalog on proper withdrawal procedures to follow. The amount of Title IV aid that must be returned to the school is based on the total amount of aid received and how long the student attended classes. Sample repayment calculations are available from the aid office. Students who maintain class attendance through the 60% date of each semester will not owe a repayment of aid.
Students who cannot meet financial aid deadlines or do not qualify for financial aid may use the E-Cashier tuition payment plan.
Financial Aid deadlines are as follows:
- Fall Semester - June 1
- Spring Semester - October 1
- Summer Semester - March 1
By the deadline, the aid applicant must have:
- Completed all Admissions requirements.
- Completed the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) at www.fafsa.gov.
- Provided any supporting documentation as requested by the federal government or the aid office.
