MEET THE FOLLOWING REQUIREMENTS TO QUALIFY:
Your Cost to Attend SMC
ALL SMC students who meet the above criteria will receive the Full Tuition Scholarship automatically, regardless of family income level.
It’s important to understand: the Full Tuition Scholarship does not cover room and board – there are still costs associated with attending SMC.
- If you plan to live on campus, you will pay room/board and fees.
- If you plan to live off campus, you will pay fees.
SMC’s Full Tuition Scholarship covers the total cost of your tuition ($15,750). The remaining costs must be paid for by you or your family.
The majority of SMC students use additional federal and state loans/grants or personal loans to cover the remaining costs to attend. You or your family’s annual income (based on providing tax returns when you apply for financial aid) determines how much “free money” (federal or state aid that doesn’t have to be paid back) you may qualify for. You may also take out loans to pay a portion of your SMC costs. That money will have to be paid back, typically beginning about six months after you graduate. You or your family may also directly pay all or a portion of your costs. SMC also offers payment plans to help you spread the cost over several months.
To help you visualize how financial aid sources can help you cover the total cost of attending SMC, we have provided sample financial aid worksheets based on sample income levels.
