Summer 2022 Funding

Don’t leave money on the table. SCC has funding available to help you pay for college.

With federal and state funding available, there has never been a better time to go to college, enhance your skills, or train for a new career. Scholarships and grant opportunities are available through the Higher Education Emergency Relief Funding, the North Carolina Longleaf Commitment Grant, and the Governor’s Emergency Relief Fund.

Summer 2022 HEERF Funding

Southeastern Community College Higher Education Emergency Relief Funding (HEERF) will be distributed to eligible students enrolled in the Summer 2022 semester.

These funds provided by the Higher Education Emergency Relief fund can be used to assist students with college costs such as childcare, transportation, books, tuition, and other related expenses.  Students should complete the SCC Summer Funding Emergency application for consideration. Students must be enrolled in classes for the Summer 2022 semester to apply for these funds. Students that want to use these funds for tuition fees and books must give consent on the application.  Students are responsible for any remaining balance on their accounts.  Funding is limited and applications should be submitted by June 1, 2022. Additional requirements may apply.
