Paying for college
****To apply for a Federal Direct Loan****
Let us know how we are doing. Fill out our Financial Aid Survey.
The philosophy of financial aid is that the educational opportunities of capable students should not be limited by their financial resources. Although the primary responsibility for financing rests with the student and his/her immediate family, it is recognized that many students will require additional assistance in order to finance their educational goals. The objective of the financial aid program at South Plains College is to provide assistance based on documented financial need to students unable to attend college without such aid. The HEOA requires us to share tax filing information with our students concerning educational credits. Please go to the following url for that information: http://www.irs.gov/publications/p970/
At South Plains College you have access to an affordable, high-quality education. Remember, there are always options you can use to help pay tuition and fees, including financial aid and veterans benefits.
Students should contact the campus Financial Aid Office on the campus they will attend for assistance in completing financial aid or scholarship applications and for answers to specific questions about the financial aid process. All campuses call 806.894.9611 Ext 3800.

All students must maintain Satisfactory Academic Progress (SAP) to be eligible to receive financial aid. See page 44 in the General Catalog for more information.
As per regulation 34 CFR 668.20, we cannot award the student financial aid for classes that do not count toward his degree or certificate. If you are enrolled in remedial classes only, you are not considered to be enrolled in either a certificate or associates degree program. Financial aid cannot pay for 100% remedial course work. Be sure you are enrolled in at least 1 college level credit course each semester.
Any student who register for classes, but is not able to attend for any reason, must withdraw from those classes before the first class day or s/he will owe South Plains College 30% of the cost of tuition and fees for those classes. See page 33 of the General Catalog for more information.
Students cannot receive Financial Aid Funding from two institutions during the same semester.
