College can be expensive!
Luckily, there are a number of options to help ease the financial burden:
Scholarships: Scholarships are financial awards based on merit. Different awards require different criteria. Visit our scholarship page for current scholarship opportunities and to access the scholarship websites for Utah colleges.
Grants: Grants are given by the government and do not need to be repaid. Grants are based on financial need. You must submit your FAFSA (Free Application for Federal Student Aid) in order to receive grants. If you're curious about whether or not you will qualify, try the FAFSA4caster. Click on the links on this page for FAFSA tutorials.
SLCC Promise: If you qualify for a grant, SLCC will make up the difference in tuition cost resulting in a full-ride.
GI Bill: If your parent served in the military, you may be eligible for financial assistance through the GI Bill.
Loans: Low interest student loans are available through the government based on FAFSA. Student loans must be repaid.
Work Study: Work Study is the 3rd financial assistance option determined by FAFSA. Qualified students will receive the opportunity to work on-campus to help off-set the cost of attendance. Eligibility for work study does not guarantee a job, as all employment opportunities vary.
Some employers are willing to help offset the cost of college through tuition reimbursement.
