• You May Be Eligible For Financial Aid Assistance!

    Did you know that many financial aid sources go untapped? People are reluctant to apply or assume that they do not qualify.

    We have multiple sources for financial aid. You may be eligible and not even realize it! Most financial aid is awarded on the basis of financial need. Need is the difference between your cost of education (educational expenses such as tuition, fees, room, board, books, supplies, etc.) and the amount you and your family contribute toward your education. To see if you qualify, make an appointment with an STC Financial Aid Specialist today!

    Federal Pell and Federal Supplemental Education Opportunity (FSEOG) are awards made to students by the federal government for educational purposes. These grants do not have to be paid back after students finish their training program.

    Many area organizations, businesses, and individuals offer scholarships to students. Some of these groups choose their recipients and have their own application process. Other scholarships are processed by the Suncoast Technical College's Financial Aid office and recipients are selected based on criteria set forth by the donor and/or Suncoast Technical College. Scholarships will help pay for educational expenses and are available to students that may or may not qualify for other forms of financial aid.

    CareerSource Suncoast offers financial assistance programs for disadvantaged students. The program will pay for the student's registration; lab fees and books; and, where applicable, other specialized program needs such as uniforms, and State Board examination fees. For additional information students call CareerSource Suncoast at 941-358-4200.
