Not all of the certificates offered at SCC are eligible for financial aid! Be sure your vocational certificate program is on the list below.
In order to receive financial aid, a student is required to have an eligible educational goal and must be enrolled in an eligible degree or certificate program. Certificates that are listed on the eligible certificate list are approved certificate programs for financial aid funding.
Students who are in an eligible certificate program for financial aid funding will only receive funding for courses needed for the certificate program and basic skill (remedial) courses. The Financial Aid Office will review all transcripts to determine if the appropriate courses are needed to complete the certificate program. Again, this only applies to students with an educational goal (E) Earn a Vocational Certificate.
We encourage students to meet with a Sacramento City College counselor if they have questions or need further guidance determining their educational goal. Students can complete a Change of Data Form at Admissions & Records to update their educational goal.
