Scholarships are common ways to pay for college. Once admitted to JCCC, your scholarship application makes you eligible for financial aid based on merit, financial need and more.
JCCC offers a variety of scholarships to qualified applicants.
Some JCCC college scholarships are need-based, requiring applicants to complete a FAFSA prior to the April 1 scholarship priority deadline. The others are merit-based and do not require a FAFSA on file.
Scholarship criteria, amounts and deadlines are subject to change.
The least restrictive scholarship is the general scholarship, awarded to graduating high school seniors and to new or continuing JCCC students who are enrolled a minimum of six credit hours and have a cumulative grade point average of 2.5 or higher.
Four things are required to be considered for a JCCC general college scholarship:
- Have a current JCCC application for admission on file with the Admissions Office.
- Be degree or certificate seeking.
- Complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). If you don't complete the FAFSA, you will not be considered for a need-based scholarship. However, you may be eligible for a merit-based scholarship.
- Complete the JCCC scholarship application before April 1.
Please be aware that any outside resources received could result in an adjustment to your original financial aid award.
