Web Access for Financial Aid

The Financial Aid Office is located in Elston Hall, Room 222. For general information, please call (518) 381-1352.

The Financial Aid Office processes all financial aid applications including the awarding of all federal and state grants, scholarships and student loans. All financial aid expires every May, and all students must reapply for financial aid each year. Students should reapply for financial aid for the next academic year as soon as their federal tax returns are completed.

Students may access their financial aid award information and application status using their SCCC ID number (usually beginning with 900 or G00) and their six digit SCCC PIN. Students may access the following financial aid information:

My Eligibility – Allows students to review the list of their financial aid required documents, by academic year, to determine if any other information is still needed by the Financial Aid Office.

My Award Information – students may view their financial aid award information.

My Overall Status of Financial Aid – Students may view all of their financial aid award information.

Award Package By Aid Year – Students may view their financial aid grants, scholarships and student loans for the academic year (Summer, Fall and Spring semesters combined).
