Students Going to Four-Year College Or University

Attending a four-year college or university? Send an enrollment verification to the Sierra College Financial Aid Office. We require enrollment verifications 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.
