A quality education is a significant investment, but with higher costs comes higher quality. Every year, Sterling commits more than $6.5 million to student scholarships, so a great education is more affordable than you may think.
Loan Completion Steps
Entrance Counseling is a learning tool designed by the Department of Education to teach students about student loans and borrowing. This process is required for all students who use Direct Student Loans.
How to accept/decline aid
Watch For Your Student Aid Report
- After you file the FAFSA, read the first page of the Student Aid Report (SAR) as it contains important instructions.
- Review for accuracy. Make corrections as necessary.
- Complete and provide any other documentation requested by the Sterling College financial aid office.
- More questions? Contact Financial Aid.
- Be clear about what you can contribute toward expenses in advance.
- Talk to your student about what their financial responsibilities should be, whether it is working a part-time job, applying for financial aid or taking out a student loan.
- Be sure to remind them that every family is different and therefore their friends may have different financial obligations and responsibilities.
To schedule a Personal Visit:
- Review the Campus Calendar. It is best to visit when classes are in session to get the full SC experience. However, the Admissions Office is often open during breaks, and could still offer a Personal Visit but meetings with professors may not be available (nor will classes, chapel or overnight stays).
- Review all of the Campus Visit Opportunities offered.
