Summer Momentum


  • Students are eligible to receive in-district tuition if they have successfully completed 16 or more credit hours in courses during the Fall 2023 and Winter 2024 Semesters, with a cumulative GPA of 2.0 or higher. 

  • Students must have 16+ credits registered at the time of applying, but they do not have to be completed until the end of the Winter 2024 Semester.

  • 16 credits qualifies for tuition for up to 6 credit hours in the Summer Semester plus Student Support Fee (up to $728.00)

  • The scholarship only applies to courses in an eligible student’s Academic Plan of Study.

  • Guest students, early/middle college students and dual enrolled students in the Summer Semester are not eligible.

  • The scholarship doesn’t apply to courses students did not attend (Non-attendance - N grade).  An N grade will result in scholarship adjustments with a balance on the student account. The award can be reinstated if the student is enrolled in and attends a class in a later part of the semester.

  • The scholarship does not apply to credits for audited courses and credit-by-exam courses.  The scholarship also does not cover additional class related costs; they are the responsibility of the student.

  • The Summer Momentum Scholarship will apply toward any outstanding tuition and fees charges after other financial aid has been applied (excluding Direct Loans).

  • The application deadline is Friday, April 19, 2024.

  • The application will be awarded on a first come, first awarded basis.


  • Students registering for classes but not attending, and receiving an “N” grade will have the scholarship removed and will be billed for those classes.  Students may not be able to engage in future registration activities until the balance is paid in full.
