Have you graduated and successfully met the requirements from a designated A+ Missouri high school? The Missouri A+ Schools Program will help you continue your education at any public community college or technical school within the state of Missouri tuition free.

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 July 1
    Spring Dec. 1
    Summer May 1
  4. Submit all verification documents, if selected by the Department of Education. (We will notify you by mail 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. 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+ Scholarship benefits will cover tuition expenses only. Lab fees, private music lesson fees, telecourse fees and other miscellaneous fees are excluded and are the responsibility of the A+ student. See Tuition & Fees for cost information.
  • Remedial courses at SCC qualify for A+ funding; however, in order to establish a grade point average (GPA) for a given term, you must take at least one college-level course.
  • Any federal and/or state grants that you are eligible for will be applied to your account prior to A+ funding.
