For assistance with financial aid questions, please call 402-437-2610 or email

Satisfactory Academic Progress - SCC is required to establish academic standards that students must meet in order to be eligible for financial aid.  It is the responsibility of each student to review this policy and ensure the standards are met.

Find procedures to officially withdraw from a course or program.

Students receiving federal financial aid may be subject to the Return of Title IV Funds policy. You may also find SCC’s institutional refund policy here.

Entrance Counseling for Student Loan Borrowers

If you borrow a federal student loan, you must complete the Master Promissory Note (MPN) and Entrance Counseling before you may receive loan funds. To complete and sign the MPN go to Completing a Master Promissory Note | Federal Student Aid. Entrance Counseling may be completed at Entrance Counseling | Federal Student Aid.

You will need your FSA ID and password to log in to this website.

If you do not have internet access, please contact the Financial Aid Office at: 402-437-2610.

Exit Counseling for Student Loan Borrowers

For information about responsibilities and options for repaying your student loans, see the Federal Student Loan Repayment page.

Private Education Loans

Some lenders offer private, “alternative”, loans to students to help cover educational costs. These loans generally require the borrower to have good credit or a credit-worthy cosigner. Eligibility requirements, application procedures, fees, interest rates, finance charges, and repayment terms, and deferment options may vary from lender to lender.

The terms and conditions of a Federal Direct loan or Federal Direct PLUS loan may be more favorable than the provisions of private education loans so families are encouraged to utilize the Federal Direct Loan and the Federal Direct PLUS Loan before considering an alternative loan.

Please review this information about the differences between federal and private student loans.

Southeast Community College has no preferred lender arrangements regarding private education loans.

College Financing Plan

The College Financing Plan is a consumer tool provided through the U.S. Department of Education and designed to simplify information students receive regarding costs and financial aid. The student can then make informed decisions about which school to attend. Students who have applied to SCC can access their individual College Financing Plan in Webadvisor for Students on The Hub after the students complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) and have been awarded. Students will need to view their award notification on their account and either accept or decline their financial aid.

Paying for College

The Consumer Finance Protection Bureau’s Paying for College website provides information about paying for college and a tool to compare financial aid offers.

Net Price Calculator

The Net Price Calculator gives students an estimate of a college’s costs. SCC's Net Price Calculator is available here.

Online and Distance Learning

All colleges must adhere to each state’s requirements regulating the delivery of online education to out-of-state students. These requirements limit SCC’s ability to offer online education in some areas outside of Nebraska.

Southeast Community College is a State Authorization Reciprocity Agreement Institution (NC-SARA) institution. As such, SCC is unable to offer online or distance courses to students in the following areas at this time: American Samoa, Guam and the Commonwealth of the Northern Mariana Islands.

Out-of-State Complaint Process

Southeast Community College is committed to resolving student complaints in an expeditious, fair and friendly manner. SCC's online students residing outside of Nebraska should resolve complaints with SCC by contacting Bruce Exstrom, Ph.D., Dean of Virtual Learning and Instructional Development, or 402-323-3389.

SCC works diligently to find positive outcomes to student concerns. Please try to exhaust all possible avenues of complaint resolution before going outside of the college. In Nebraska, the agency assigned to the oversight of NC-SARA processes is the Nebraska Coordinating Commission for Postsecondary Education. The Commission may be contacted at 402-471-2847.

Southeast Community College also provides a list of other State Agencies (PDF) with contact information for each state. You may also contact our accrediting agency, The Higher Learning Commission or the Nebraska State Department of Education.

Textbooks & Bookstores

SCC students are given the opportunity to purchase textbooks with their financial aid if the student has enough funds to cover direct costs to the college (tuition, fees, housing, etc.) and has a remaining credit balance on their account. Any book and/or supply purchase made with financial aid may not exceed the amount of credit remaining on the student’s account. Only books and supplies needed for the student’s program of study may be charged against the remaining credit.

Students can access the online bookstore or visit the bookstore on each campus. Find your textbook.

Diploma Programs with Reduced Financial Aid Eligibility


Diploma Programs with Reduced Financial Aid Eligibility

According to federal regulations [34 CFR 668.8(k) and (l), and guidance from the Department of Education, if a non-degree program (diploma, certificate) does not fully transfer to an associate degree, that program is subject to a specific calculation that will establish how many credits within the program are eligible for federal financial aid. The amount of aid available to the student is determined based on those eligible credits, and the student’s enrollment status (full-time, ¾ time, half-time, less-than-half-time).

So, what does this mean?
If a student enrolls in one of the programs subject to the calculation, federal financial aid may be limited. You will be responsible for the tuition and fees for the number of credits not covered by financial aid.


Please refer to the SCC catalog for current program requirements.
