Student Success Completion Grant
Student Success Completion Grant can help you pay for your college education.
The Student Success Completion Grant (SSCG) award provides students receiving a Cal Grant with additional financial aid when students take 12 or 15 units or more per term.
SSCGs provide students with aid to help offset the total costs of community college and to encourage full-time attendance and successful on-time completion.
Eligibility goes to students receiving a Cal Grant B or C who take at least 12 units per term. Apply by filling out a Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) or California Dream Act Application (CADAA). Students must also be making satisfactory academic progress (SAP) with unmet needs to receive the SSCG.
The Student Success Completion Grant now offers $4,000 per semester for students taking 15 or more units, and $1,298 per semester for students taking 12-14.9 units, doubling the possible per year allocation for qualifying students.
