Available Opportunities and Resources for Students with Bachelor's DegreesSolano Community College (SCC) has been approved by the U.S. Department of Education to be an experimental site beginning Fall semester 2013 to offer eligible Bachelor degree educated individuals an opportunity to return to school to pursue another degree or retrain for a career. The experiment involves the Federal Pell Grant Program, wherein only students who already possess a Bachelor's degree may qualify to enroll in vocational or career programs.
All Title IV regulations apply and students must be determined eligible for a Pell Grant to participate in the experimental program. To be considered, the student must complete a Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) at www.fafsa.ed.gov
Students applying for aid must be enrolled in a vocational program that is less than one-year in length. For a list of vocational programs offered by Solano Community College please go to: http://www.solano.edu/business/disciplines.php and http://www.solano.edu/business/gep.php
