Emergency Funding

Update on CARES Act/ Emergency funding for Winter 2021


We understand that the COVID-19 pandemic and ongoing economic crisis has strained many students and their families. Unfortunately, emergency funding from SCC will not have the full capacity to address all financial needs that students are facing. Student Support Programs has a limited amount of Pandemic Stimulus funding to provide eligible students with a one-time stimulus in the amount of $1,000. The application for funding is available in the below link. Please note that once funding has been exhausted for Winter, the application will be closed.


To be eligible, students need to have their tuition paid or set up a payment plan. Funding priority will go to students who meet the following criteria:

- First time recipient of emergency funds or CARES Act fund for the 2020 - 2021 academic year

- Currently unhoused

- Incurring COVID related health expenses

- Submitted FAFSA for the 2020 - 2021 academic year


Students who meet the requirements will be notified of their award status. Financial Aid will process the awards and disburse funds via BankMobile.  

Please note that the Financial Aid office will not be able to disperse funds during the month of February due to a district wide overhaul of our processing systems. Student Support Programs will disperse any remaining funds to students in March 2021.
