Getting financial aid at Sussex County Community College can be an aggravating process for those students who apply. Most students recall many trips to the Financial Aid Office on campus in order to sort out the required documents. Although the department is comprised of caring individuals, it is a slow, painful, and relentless process for most students here. Students should submit their form and appropriate supplemental papers far in advance to cope with ‘losing’ files, delayed filing, or unforeseen issues that may arise in their paperwork. The majority of students who apply receive some aid…eventually.
In order to meet deadlines that determine whether or not a student receives aid for the semester, it is important for students to be cautious about the accuracy of the information on their forms and to check the status of their application or any needed documents. Tuition is already very affordable at Sussex County Community College, but those who are able to receive aid find the cost that much more rewarding.
