Financial Aid


Sampson Community College is committed to helping you get the funds you need to pay for your education. We will work with you to obtain scholarships, federal student aid and other forms of assistance for which you qualify.

How much does it cost to go to school?

Students and their families can use the Net Price Calculator to estimate the cost of school. This calculator is intended to provide estimated net price information (defined as estimated cost of attendance — including tuition and required fees, books and supplies, room and board (meals), and other related expenses — minus estimated grant and scholarship aid) to current and prospective students and their families based on what similar students paid in a previous year. Please also refer to the Tuition & Fees Chart for current costs per credit hour for curriculum classes.

How do I apply for financial aid to help pay for school?

To receive any state or federal student aid you qualify for, you must first complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA).

What will financial aid pay for?

The US Department of Education will not fund financial aid to pay the cost of  curriculum programs (for-credit) containing less than sixteen (16) semester hours. Additionally, financial aid DOES NOT cover any expenses related to Workforce Development & Continuing Education (WD&CE) classes and programs (non-credit) .
