Transient Student Financial Aid
If you are a degree-seeking student at SCF and are planning to enroll at another institution to take classes and wish to receive your financial assistance from SCF, you must follow the following steps:
- Your financial aid file must be complete for your consortium to be approved.
- You cannot receive financial aid at both institutions, only your home school (SCF) for which you are degree-seeking.
- State of Florida funds such as Bright Futures and Florida Student Assistance Grant will not be applied to out-of-state tuition.
- Tuition, fees, and books/supplies will be paid to the host school by the student by the host school's deadline.
- Transient coursework must transfer back to SPC and apply toward the degree-program you are enrolled in.
- The Registrar Transient Form or the www.facts.org course approval that shows the approved courses to take at the host school must be attached to the Consortium Agreement for Transient Study.
- The application will be denied if you register for courses that were not approved or fail to properly complete the Consortium Agreement for Transient Study.
