Financial Aid

May 3 is the “Big Day of Giving” and the Los Rios Foundation is accepting donations through the BDOG website that will be funneled to SCC.
According to the district, any employee donation made before midnight May 4 will be directed to our respective colleges, so the financial support will do good work where we do good work.
Those funds will be sent to the SCC Foundation to help augment student scholarships, text book vouchers and other programs that help students and the college.
