Financial Aid

Don't Wait

File your 2020-2021 FAFSA!

CARES Act Emergency Relief Fund: As a result of the COVID-19/coronavirus pandemic, STCC has received federal funding to help students. The Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security Act (“CARES Act”), enables STCC to provide eligible students with grant support to help cover expenses incurred due to campus disruption related to COVID-19. Students may be eligible for funding from STCC through the CARES Act. Students who meet Title IV eligibility can submit a request through the CARES Fund Request Form. The CARES Fund Request Form is temporarily unavailable and will be reposted soon.


Federal and state financial aid is available to students who need assistance with paying for their college education. At Springfield Technical Community College (STCC), the Student Financial Services staff will assist you throughout the FAFSA application process and provide you with the most current information available on its financial aid programs. If you need assistance completing the Financial Aid Process please schedule an appointment with STCC's Student Financial Services FAFSA Experts. We have outlined the various types of financial aid programs at STCC which include grants/waivers, federal work-study programs, and loans. Please refer to the Financial Aid Programs section for detailed information.

The financial aid application is a separate process from the admission application. Please complete both, following each individual set of guidelines, requirements, and deadlines.
