Student Success Completion Grant (SSCG)


The Student Success Completion Grant is a new financial aid program that helps you afford full-time enrollment so you can graduate, begin your career and start earning money sooner. If you’re a current California community college student or are planning to enroll, you now have the opportunity to receive more financial aid as a full-time student.

With the Student Success Completion Grant, the more classes you take, the more money you’re eligible to receive. You can get up to $8,000 a year to help cover education and living expenses. That means you can work less, take more classes and stay on track to get your degree faster.


You are eligible for the Student Success Completion Grant if you enroll full-time (12+ units per semester), are disbursed a full-time Cal Grant B or C. To stay eligible for this grant you will need to maintain satisfactory academic performance including a 2.0 Grade Point Average (GPA) or higher. Contact the financial aid office at your college for more information.


12-14.999 units / semester* = $1,298 / semester ($2,596 per year)*

15+ units / semester* = $4,000 / semester ($8,000 per year)*

*Funding is limited and awards are based on enrollment at the student’s financial aid freeze date. Probation conditions will apply.  Payments for a prior term are limited to completed classes only.  Classes with Ws, FWs, EWs or Is will not be included for payment purposes.


  • The student needs to have a full-time Cal Grant B or C disbursement in order to be considered for SSCG.  Cal Grant A students are not eligible for SCCG
  • SSCG may be delayed due to the student’s enrollment in late-start (LS) classes.
    • We will review the students for disbursement once their LS classes begin
    • This will include review for increases for students that are in 15+ units when their LS classes begin

We are using the student’s census date (like Pell) for any adjustments.  That means there will be no increases for students that have added classes after their freeze date.
