Financial aid is the economic assistance available to help students pay for college. This economic assistance may be in the form of scholarships, grants, work-study programs, or loans.
A financial aid package is a combination of different forms of financial aid that together make up an offer of financial assistance.
A student's ability to contribute to the cost of his or her education is determined by the use of a NEED ANALYSIS which is a consistent, systematic way of measuring the ability of a family to pay for educational costs and its eligibility to receive funds from federal and state programs. It determines the ability, not the willingness, of a student or his or her family to finance his or her education. Everyone who applies is treated fairly and equally under this system. The amount of financial aid that a student receives may not exceed his or her cost of education as established by the College.

Online learning is generally described as an educational environment in which there is a physical separation between the student and the instructor. Computer-mediated communication, collaboration and assessment tools are used to disseminate course materials, promote interaction and evaluate learning. South College uses the learning management system Moodle to support the delivery of hybrid and online learning programs and courses. Online learning classes are driven by student learning outcomes and designed using sound pedagogical principles in online teaching, learning and assessment. Students enrolled in online learning programs and courses are held to the same high academic standards and have similar educational experiences as students taking on-campus courses. Course lectures may appear in written form or written form enhanced with multimedia (i.e., narrated presentations, audio clips, video components, including lectures and screen captures). In addition to lectures, course materials may include online discussion forums and chats, collaborative learning and group work, quizzes and assessments, student presentations, writing assignments, readings, web-based research and other activities as identified by the faculty member.
