Financial Aid


Welcome to the Student Financial Aid web site at Southeast Arkansas College. We look forward to assisting you by providing guidance through the financial aid process. We understand your need for financial assistance, and our counselors and staff are dedicated to helping you as you pursue your college education.

The primary purpose of Student Financial Aid at Southeast Arkansas College is to provide assistance to students who, without aid, would be unable to attend college.  All awards are administered by the Financial Aid Office in accordance with State and Federal Regulations.

Did you know….

You should never pay to have someone assist you in finding or applying for financial aid. High school counselors, the SEARK Financial Aid Office and free search databases can provide you with most of the information you need. You also need to be prepared to do some footwork yourself, but it is worth the effort.


(Default Prevention Outreach only)

You’re not alone when it comes to student loans. SEARK has partnered with Inceptia, a division of National Student Loan Program (NSLP), to provide you with FREE assistance on your Federal student loan obligations to ensure successful, and comfortable, loan repayment. Inceptia’s friendly customer representatives may reach out to you if your loan(s) become delinquent. Inceptia is not a collection agency. We’ve partnered with them to help you explore a wide variety of possibilities such as alternative repayment plans, deferment, consolidation, discharge, forgiveness, and forbearance options. Inceptia will stay in touch with you via phone calls, letters, and/or emails to help you find answers to your questions and solutions to your issues.
