Students Transferring to Four-Year College Or University

Attending a four-year college or university? Send the enrollment verification to the Sierra College Financial Aid Office. We require enrollment verification for the fall and spring semesters.

After we receive your enrollment verification, your scholarship check will be sent to your four-year institution’s Financial Aid Office. Most scholarships come in two disbursements: half for fall and the other half for spring.

Receiving Scholarships from Your High School or Other Organizations

High schools and organizations (like Rotary Clubs and Foundations) usually send us your scholarship checks. These checks are payable to the Sierra College Financial Aid Office. You can receive your scholarship if you:

  • Are a current Sierra College Student
  • Are enrolled in the number of units required for your scholarship
  • Meet all other criteria set by your donor
