In order for Shelton State Community College to properly process each financial aid application, deadlines are required for each term. Students that do not meet the deadline will have a delay in the financial aid process. Shelton State Community College offers financial assistance to eligible students to help pay their educational costs. Financial aid is designed to supplement the family’s ability to finance the student’s educational expenses. Shelton State is approved for Federal Grant Aid, Veterans Benefits, Vocational Rehabilitation Training, and Alabama Prepaid Affordable College Tuition (PACT). The institution also awards state and private scholarships.
