Financial aid is ﬁnancial assistance provided to eligible students through the Ofﬁce of Student Financial Aid in the form of grants, loans, part-time work, and scholarships to help pay the cost of attending college. Financial aid is routed through federal, state, and local agencies and programs. These may include scholarships, Federal Pell Grants, Federal Supplemental Educational Opportunity Grants (FSEOG), Federal Work-Study Program (FWS), and Federal Stafford Loans. Aid eligibility is determined by a formula established by the Department of Education and an analysis of the family’s ﬁnancial information and demonstrated need. Additionally, students must be seeking a degree or certiﬁcate to obtain ﬁnancial aid. Financial Aid Applications can be obtained from the Financial Aid Ofﬁce at Salish Kootenai College.
The Financial Aid office is currently open 8:00 AM - 4:30 PM Monday through Friday.
