• "This is the saddest day in the 50 year history of UCC. Our hearts go out to every student, every employee, and every family touched by this tragedy.

    "I want to thank all of our friends and neighbors who have dropped everything to help us. Over the next weeks, we will come together to accept offers of help and care so that we can assist one another."

    -Dr. Rita Cavin
    UCC Interim President

    Beginning Monday, Oct 5, grief sharing will be available on campus, 7:30am - 5pm in the cafeteria.

  • Want to help?

    The Greater Douglas United Way is accepting donations via text and online: http://www.gduway.org/UCCgive

    The Umpqua Community College Foundation is accepting donations online and by mail: https://www.umpqua.edu/scholarships-donations

    We strongly recommend that donors cast a careful eye when considering other funds, as some are not based at charitable organizations and might apply high administrative fees. Also, unfortunately, at times like these, there are unscrupulous people who will set up false accounts.

Financial Aid Literacy Seminar

The Financial Aid Literacy Seminar will help you borrow responsibly and understand the changes in federal regulations that affect both you and the college.

Understanding the new Satisfactory Academic Progress (SAP) Policy and how your decisions can impact your financial aid is important for making informed decisions.

Along with the new Financial Aid SAP policy, you will learn details of the Federal Direct Loan program and what you can expect if you decide to borrow money to finance your education.

The online seminar is composed of six units which can be completed in 2 - 2.5 hours at your convenience. Your financial aid check disbursement is dependent on completion of the course. The on-campus course is usually completed within 3 - 3.5 hours.
