To apply for admission to SCC – SCC Admission Application


To apply for financial aid – FAFSA Application

Veteran students are encouraged to apply for the FAFSA.  The FAFSA is the application for the Pell Grant and could provide additional financial assistance.  If eligible, the Pell Grant funds would be in addition to VA benefits.


For those VA students who are taking seated classes and/or coming to the Albemarle campus, SCC offers a center called “The Nook.” The Nook is located in the Patterson Building, room 117 and offers the VA student a quiet place to study, and the opportunity to meet other Veterans. We even provide coffee or water and snacks for you to enjoy!

Questions regarding the Military Service Educational benefits should be directed to the School Certifying Officials who are located in the Financial Aid Office.
