Students who need financial assistance to attend GSCC may be able to receive help through one or more programs offered or administered by the College, including student financial aid programs funded by the Federal government and various institutional scholarships. In addition, Gadsden State may have available institutional scholarships donated by individuals, businesses, industries, and service organizations. To receive such assistance, students must be selected based on criteria approved by the College Scholarship Committee. The following pages briefly explain the financial aid programs and the scholarships available to qualified Gadsden State students. Since the College cannot meet the financial needs of all applicants, students are also urged to investigate outside sources of aid.
