NW-SCC announces plan to offer students at least half tuition this fall through CARES

Northwest-Shoals Community College is using Coronavirus Aid, Relief and Economic Security funding to provide a tuition break for students who register for the fall semester – offering at least 50 percent off tuition.

The college has received approximately $6 million in CARES money to be disseminated for students. To date, NW-SCC has given out almost $3 million.

The amount of CARES funds students receive this fall will depend on how many hours they have taken at NW-SCC.

NW-SCC President Dr. Glenda Colagross said the CARES money will be given to students after they complete their CARES application, once they register for fall semester classes.

“Our students have had a hard time the past year, and we believe we have developed a plan to help them regardless of what stage they are at with their education,” said Colagross. “All students that have applied for CARES will receive at least half tuition.

“We will look at each individual case. Some may receive even more if they’ve been at the college throughout the pandemic.”

High school dual-enrolled students – limit to two classes – and NW-SCC students within 15 hours of graduating will receive full tuition free if they have applied for CARES.

Registration is now underway at www.nwscc.edu/2021-summerfall-registration.

To be eligible for the financial help, students must first register for classes and then apply through their individual Moodle student portal. They will receive an email and/or text message from the college explaining the process.

NW-SCC fall semester classes begin Aug. 19.
