Complete/ Update Your FAFSA

The FAFSA can be completed online at using the code 012031.  Once the FAFSA is complete, you will receive notice from our Enrollment Services department concerning your Financial Aid Award Package.

Registration Check-In and Tuition Deposit

Our registration check-in and deposit form allows us to confirm your information in order to enroll you in your classes. All students must submit a $100.00 tuition deposit in order to receive their class schedule. This form also allows our incoming resident students to submit the tuition and housing deposit at the same time if they are able to do so. 

The Registration Check-In and Deposit form can be submitted online here.

Housing Deposit (Resident Students Only)

The housing deposit ($250.00, non-refundable) allows the student's housing form information to be processed and reserves a room for him/her in student housing.  This deposit goes towards your bill (it is not an extra fee). If you did not submit your housing deposit along with your tuition deposit, the housing deposit can be made online here

Confirmation of Residence

This form must be completed by all students even if you are not planning to live in student housing.  It will assist SDC in assigning roommates and verifying addresses of those living off campus.  Click here to complete the Confirmation of Residence Form.

TB Test & Health Form

All students must take a Tuberculosis skin test within one year of arriving on campus and submit their test results to SDC before the first day of class. You can complete the health form by clicking here.

Final Transcripts

All final high school and college transcripts must be submitted after completion of your final semester.

Financial Check-In With Financial Services

Instruction on financial check-in will be emailed to you by your success coach.
