Approved High School Accreditations for Financial Aid

Important Information

  • If your financial aid has not been awarded and ALL required documentation turned in prior to registration day, you will be responsible for payment of your tuition and books. Your financial aid is not complete until ALL documentation has been received. Notification of any missing documents will be mailed to your address on file. You can also check Self-Service by clicking here. If you have trouble logging in, click here.
  • The student financial aid program at James Sprunt Community College is administered according to the nationally accepted principle that the family (meaning parents or those acting in place of parents, the student, and/or spouse) is responsible for a student’s educational expenses*. Financial aid is available to fill the “gap” between the total cost of education and the amount the family can reasonably be expected to contribute.* Reasonable educational expenses constitute the student’s educational budget. Expenses included in the student’s educational budget are tuition and fees, room and board, books, supplies, transportation, miscellaneous personal expenses, and expenses related to maintenance of a student’s dependents.
