STEP 3: APPLY FOR FINANCIAL AID
What is Financial Aid?
Financial aid is funding that will help you and your family meet college expenses such as tuition, fees, books, supplies, etc. The basic sources of aid are grants, scholarships, employment, and loans. You and your parents (if you are dependent) are considered the primary sources of funding for these costs. Financial aid is intended to fill the gaps where you and your parents might fall short in paying for your education.
The Free Application for Federal Student Aid (known as the FAFSA) is a form that can be prepared annually by current and prospective college students (undergraduate and graduate) in the United States to determine their eligibility for student financial aid.
Our School Code at Salish Kootenai College is 015023

STEP 6: PLACEMENT ASSESSMENT
All new and returning full-time and part-time students who have not accumulated 30 quarter credits are required to take a Placement Assessment test that assesses skills in reading, English and mathematics, prior to pre-registration. The Placement Assessment is given prior to pre-registration and on a weekly basis throughout the year. Notice of the Placement Assessment dates will be posted in the SKC quarterly Class Schedule.
Placement Assessment must be taken before registration for classes can occur.
Placement Assessment Weekly Schedule
Monday 11:30 a.m.
Wednesday 9:00 a.m.
The Placement Assessment will take approximately 3+ hours. The Placement Assessment is timed; therefore, it is important that students arrive on time. Students do not need to sign up ahead of time.
Location of the Placement Assessment testing is in the Department of Academic Success building, room 110.
For question about the Placement Assessment contact the Department of Academic Success (406) 275-4792 or (406) 275-4868.
