SCC will conduct workshop at Laurel Campus for students filing for financial aid

Somerset Community College will be conducting a free workshop which will provide assistance to students and their families applying for college financial aid. This free workshop is open to all students no matter what college they plan to attend. It will be held Thursday, February 17 from 6:00 until 8:00 p.m. in the Health Sciences Building on the SCC Laurel Campus, located at 100 University Drive in London.

Financial aid professionals from Somerset Community College will help students and families complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). The FAFSA is the form students must submit to receive federal and state student aid. This workshop will help the students and their families learn more about the financial aid process and will assist them on submitting the FAFSA in a timely manner enabling them to possibly qualify for financial aid.

  • 2010 W-2s for parents and student
  • Drivers license
  • List of colleges the student is interested in
