Financial aid & scholarships

The Sandburg Financial Aid Office is committed to helping our students find the resources to make college affordable. Our website provides detailed information to help you understand the financial aid steps as well as learn about available financial aid programs, scholarships and more. 

Check out the Appointments & videos page below. We've created and gathered a variety of videos, web resources and documents to help you learn about paying for college, the steps to apply for financial aid as well as understanding student loans.  

Need help applying for financial aid? We have a video explaining how to complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA®), or if you prefer, we offer one-on-one Zoom appointments & in-person assistance to guide you through the process. The Applying for Aid tab will guide you through the steps.
