As a Connection student, you are required to have your financial aid processed at St. Cloud Technical and Community College (SCTCC). If you are planning on taking out a private loan to pay for your St. Cloud State University (SCSU) charges (program fees, student fees, meal plans, housing, etc.), be sure to have the loan certified through the SCTCC Financial Aid Office. The St. Cloud State University Financial Aid Office will not process a private loan for your dorm charges if you are a Connection student. Once you are eligible to transfer to St. Cloud State University, the SCSU Financial Aid Office will process your aid.
You can apply for financial aid at SCTCC by first completing the FAFSA and choosing to submit your results to SCTCC by entering their school code 005534. Please contact the Financial Aid Office at St. Cloud Technical and Community College at (320) 308-5961 with any questions about your financial aid.
