HIGH SCHOOL STUDENTS:
First-semester grades for the senior year are required. A scholarship application submitted without first-semester senior grades on the transcript is incomplete and will not be considered.
Remember, each student must apply to Gadsden State. After applying, a student number (G#) will be emailed to the student. Each student must also set up a Next Gen account.
All submitted scholarship applications are final. However, if a student earns a higher ACT score after submitting their application, the following link may be used to provide the improved ACT score.

When submitting your transcript through either traditional means or through Parchment.com it is the student’s responsibility to make sure the transcript has been sent to the Scholarship Office. This transcript must reflect grades earned from 9th grade through the first semester of 12th grade and must be a separate transcript from the Admissions transcript sent to Gadsden State Community College. An incomplete transcript makes an incomplete scholarship application which cannot be considered by the Scholarship Committee.
