SLCC adds student loans, work study as financial aid options

Updated:

This Fall, South Louisiana Community College students will have additional financial aid options to help with educational expenses. The College will begin participating in both the Direct Loan and Federal Work Study Programs through the Department of Education. 

"Many students, whose expected family contributions make them ineligible for the Pell Grant Program, could benefit from additional forms of financial aid," said Dr. David Volpe, vice chancellor for Student Services. "We're adding these options to assist students with reaching their educational goals."

Students begin the financial aid application process by first completing the Free Application for Federal Student Aid, found at www.fafsa.ed.gov. Once the FAFSA is processed, the College will be able to determine a student's eligibility for financial aid, including available loan amounts.

The college will also be participating in the Federal Work Study program, which provides on-campus jobs for students with financial need. 

"This program will allow students to attend school full-time while working part-time on one of our campuses," said Volpe. "The availability of on-campus employment will provide additional flexibility when scheduling classes. Students won't have to account for extra drive time to reach a job off-campus."

SLCC currently participates in multiple forms of financial assistance including the Federal Pell Grant Program, National Guard tuition exemption program, Department of Veterans Affairs assistance, TOPS Scholarship Program, and Americorps payments. In addition, more than $60,000 is available in scholarships for the upcoming academic year.
