Walters State Community College offers many types of scholarships for students within our service area. A committee comprised of faculty, administration, and students select all recipients. This process gives consideration to high school GPA, ACT scores, post-secondary GPA and other demographic information such as county of residency, program of study, and availability of funds.
The WSCC Scholarship Committee meets in April of each year to review scholarship data and to make the awards. Each award recipient will be notified by mail regarding the type of scholarship they have been offered. Students are required to submit a scholarship acceptance form by the date indicated on the letter in order to be eligible for the scholarship. Once all acceptance letters are received, additional scholarships may be awarded based on scholarship offers that were declined.
Like other types of financial aid, scholarships come with responsibility and retention standards. It is the responsibility of the student to know and understand what is expected of them in order to retain the scholarship for future terms if applicable. Minimally students are required to meet WSCC's Satisfactory Academic Progress Standards (SAP); however, some scholarships have more stringent GPA requirements, enrollment status requirements, duration limits and work requirements.
