Financial Aid & Student Affairs


Financial aid is available to assist students who have a demonstrated financial need, or who can show an academic or special talent. Awards are available in various forms (grants, scholarships, or part-‐time employment) from federal, state, institutional, or private funds. To apply for financial assistance, contact the Office of Financial Aid and Scholarships.

Students must reapply for financial aid each academic year.

Financial aid helps students pay for their education. Financial aid is not limited to just one kind of financial aid. Students are encouraged to apply for all types of available financial aid. Many sources of financial aid may be added together as long as the total does not go over the Cost of Attendance. The Cost of Attendance includes tuition, fees, books, room and board, transportation and other miscellaneous personal expenses.

Students are not required to be enrolled full-time to receive Federal Pell Grant, FSEOG, and student loans. However, if you are enrolled less than full-time, your award(s) will be based on the number of hours of enrollment. All hours that are included in the calculation must lead directly to a Southeast Arkansas College technical certificate or associate degree. Some awards require a minimum of six (6) semester hours in order to be eligible for the funds.
