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