Financial Aid Eligibility

Financial Aid Services
All applicants must be U.S. citizens or eligible non-citizens.

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.
