SCC offering free tuition
Through a one-time program, Southwestern Community College will not charge tuition or fees to students for the 2021-22 academic year.
The “SCC Promise” initiative provides new students as well as those who’ve already enrolled with free tuition and fees this fall if they fulfill the following criteria: complete the 2021-22 free application for federal student aid (FAFSA); enroll in a minimum of six credit hours; and complete the SCC Promise application.
Students who’ve already enrolled for fall just need to go to www.SouthwesternCC.edu/FREE and fill out the “SCC Promise” application.
Free tuition and college fees are for North Carolina residents for Fall 2021 and Spring 2022 only. This is a “last-option” financial assistance program that provides tuition after all other federal and state funds have been applied. SCC will utilize various funding sources.
Anyone interested in more short-term training through SCC’s Career Academies can also get free tuition this fall through the GEER fund. More info at www.SouthwesternCC.edu/GEER.
