Our Mission

The mission of the Financial Aid Office is to provide education and information, guidance, and support for individuals and families interested in the financial aid process or who would find it difficult to attend college without financial assistance.

In this role we:

  • Process applications
  • Determine eligibility
  • Exercise stewardship over funds
  • Adhere to the rules and regulations governing the distribution of aid
  • Minimize procedural barriers
  • Provide efficient service to students who have completed the necessary requirements.

The Financial Aid Office recognizes the distinct needs of students and families, and projects a positive attitude with each interaction. Through our outreach efforts we support the overall mission of Southwest Tennessee Community College, Southwest: Your Best Choice!
