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.
