Financial Aid

It’s time to apply for financial aid for the 2017-2018 Academic Year!

At Sussex County Community College, we recognize that many students require financial assistance to meet the costs of higher education. The College expects that our students and/or their parents will contribute to the extent of their fiscal abilities; however, when the cost of education is not feasible, the College’s financial aid programs are here to help and we encourage our students to apply for financial assistance.

Students can view financial aid awards as well as documents required to complete their file at My.Sussex.Portal

Please be sure to use your college email when communicating with our staff.
