Receiving a Sierra College Scholarship
If you are attending Sierra College and are enrolled in the number of units required for your scholarship, go to the Disbursement page to sign up for direct deposit, debit card, or paper check.
If you are attending a four-year college or university, you must send an enrollment verification to the Sierra College Financial Aid Office. Enrollment verifications are required for the Fall semester/quarter and the Spring semester/quarter.
After we receive your enrollment verification, a scholarship check made out to you will be sent to your college’s Financial Aid Office. Most scholarships are issued in two disbursements: half for Fall and the other half for Spring.
