Many scholarships are available: 

To apply for a scholarship, students must have completed the following:

  • New students – Filled out the online Admission Information Form no less than 2 weeks prior to applying for a scholarship. This allows time for a Student ID Number to be mailed to the student.  Or, after completing the Admission Information Form, the student may come to campus with a picture ID to receive the Student ID Number.
  • New Students – Had an official transcript sent to the college – High School Seniors will need an official 7th semester partial transcript (which includes the cumulative GPA and testing scores) submitted to the College’s Records Department . A final transcript should be sent to Records after graduation.
  • All Students – Completed the FAFSA and  enrolled in  classes for Fall 2021
  • NOTE: Do not apply for a scholarship the same day the Admissions Information Form has been completed. Wait at least 24 hours to allow the system to update the information.
