Cardinal Promise Scholarship
Gadsden State’s commitment to students is to lessen the financial strain of attending college during this global pandemic. The new Cardinal Promise Scholarship is a “buy-one, get-one” style tuition waiver for the Spring 2021 Semester ONLY. The scholarship allows a student to pay for the cost of one class and receive a waiver that covers the in-state tuition of another class of equal or fewer credit hours. The waiver can be used for up to nine credit hours and covers tuition only (fees not included). The scholarship is only applied to equivalent credit hours of the purchases class. For example, a student must purchase a three-hour class to receive a three-hour class tuition-free. There is no minimum requirement for the scholarship.
