Everything you need to know about utilizing A+ Scholarship Funding

How do I use my A+ Scholarship at SCC?

  1. Complete an SCC Application for Admission.
  2. Have your official high school transcript with A+ seal graduation date sent to SCC.
  3. Complete the FAFSA application with SCC's school code (017027). Follow these deadlines for completing your FAFSA and you can avoid prepaying your tuition and fees:
    Academic Session Deadline
    Fall June 1
    Spring Nov 1
    Summer April 1
    A+ files not completed by the above deadlines will still be considered for reimbursement from A+ funding if completed by the following dates:
    Academic Session Deadline
    Fall Sept. 15
    Spring Feb. 15
    Summer June 15
  4. Submit all verification documents, if selected by the Department of Education. (We will notify you via your mySCC Portal if your application must be verified prior to processing.)
  5. Submit official college transcripts if you are transferring to SCC from another institution. Transcripts must be evaluated for credit and a Request for Evaluation of Transfer Credit form must be completed.
  6. Sign and accept your FA Award Letter.
  7. A+ scholarship recipients are required to enroll in the Nelnet Deferred Payment Plan. You are accepting your award as well as securing your class schedule when enrolling in the deferred payment plan. If you decide not to attend SCC after setting up Nelnet deferred, you will need to formally withdraw from classes before the end of the 100% refund period.

What does A+ cover?

  • A+ will cover the cost of your tuition expenses, capped at $196.00 per credit hour for the 2022-2023 academic year, the student success fee, and the technology fee that is associated with every credit hour. A+ reimbursement is capped at the standard credit hour rate at State Technical College of Missouri. Additional charges are at the A+ students' expenses. 
  • Courses not covered by A+ include repeated coursework in which a grade was received, coursework that is not part of an A+ student's SCC degree program or are in excess of 105% of an A+ student's degree program.
  • Any federal and/or state grants that you are eligible for will be applied to your account prior to A+ funding.

A+ Summer Restrictions

  • Students cannot use their A+ eligibility as a visiting student during a summer term if they are enrolled at a four year institution. The ONLY exception is for the summer semester immediately following a student's high school graduation.
  • You will need to have your 2022-2023 FAFSA submitted to SCC by April 1st. 
  • You must be enrolled in a minimum of 6 eligible credit hours.
  • Due to deadline constraints and heavy volume during the summer registration period, most new A+ students using benefits for a summer term will be on a reimbursement basis. Existing A+ students who have been degree seeking at SCC throughout the academic year may not need to pay upfront if they meet the above deadlines.
