Community Scholarship “BOGO” for Spring 2021


Thank you for utilizing our BOGO option for the spring semester.  This offer has concluded, however, you are encouraged to apply for available scholarships for fall 2021.  See Scholarships for details and deadlines.


In conjunction with the opening of spring registration, Shelton State Community College will offer a one-time “buy one, get one” community scholarship option for spring 2021.  Students can take up to nine (9) credit hours tuition-free.


As a response to the many challenges students are currently facing, the Alabama Community College System has approved tuition assistance through this special opportunity.   The “buy one, get one” (BOGO) option is a chance for students to double their efforts and increase their chances for success at a reduced price.


Just like so much of 2020, this option to buy one class and receive another for free is unprecedented, and the College is excited to provide this scholarship.


Guidelines for the community scholarship are listed below.


  • The student must complete the 2020-2021 FAFSA.  Dual Enrollment/Accelerated High School students are not required to complete the FAFSA.
  • The student may not already be receiving an institutional scholarship or a third-party billable aid source (i.e. Pell grant, SEOG, VA benefits, WIOA, etc.) for spring 2021.
  • The student must register for at least six (6) credit hours to utilize the BOGO option.  Payment will be required for at least three (3) credit hours for the spring 2021 semester before BOGO is awarded.
  • The scholarship is a last-dollar tuition only scholarship.  Fees are not included in the scholarship.  This means the dollar amount will be determined once all other financial resources have been exhausted.  This includes all federal/state grants.  If the total cost of tuition is covered by other financial resources, a student will not be eligible to receive the scholarship.


Any student who meets the minimum qualifications listed above will be able to take advantage of this scholarship opportunity.  There are no forms to submit or requests to complete.  The College will apply funding to the accounts of students who qualify.
