Noteworthy Turn Out at STC Financial Aid Check Up
On Thursday, July 28, Southeastern Technical College (STC) hosted its first Check Up event for 2022-2023 financial aid.
Throughout the day on both the Vidalia and Swainsboro campuses, new and returning students were assisted one-on-one in completing their financial aid applications for the new school year. Financial aid status is required to be renewed annually before the beginning of fall semester which begins August 15, 2022.
Rebecca Ethredge, Director of Financial Aid, stated that during this one-day event, her department was able to help dozens of students complete their Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) and submit documents for their aid requirements.
“Many students do not realize they are eligible for federal aid, so we encourage all students to complete a FAFSA application,” said Ethredge. “It is very important that college applicants respond to emails and text messages from STC to begin this financial aid process and to track the status of their application so they are aware if any additional documentation is needed.”
Southeastern Tech’s Financial Aid Office is available to assist students and potential students between now and August 15 to clear up any issues for this coming semester, Monday through Thursday 8 am to 6 pm.
