SC4 Creates $1 Million Fund to Support Students

St. Clair County Community College received $954,739 as part of the Federal Coronavirus Aid Relief and Economic Security (CARES) Act recently approved by Congress. They added some emergency scholarship funds to that pool and created a $1 million emergency aid fund to assist current students.

The money is available to help existing students who are experiencing additional financial need caused by the COVID-19 crisis. It provides relief for housing, transportation, basic living needs, and other college-related costs that may affect a student’s ability to attend SC4. Students experiencing hardships due to unemployment or reduced financial support from their families are encouraged to apply. The application is available online at

Registration for fall classes at SC4 opened up on April 15th. Fall semester begins on Monday, August 24, 2020.
