We ask students to include the full dollar amount that they are requesting for tuition, fees, textbooks and other support for their final quarter. Please note that Completion Grant funding is limited, that it may not fully meet student’s need, and that it is not guaranteed. We strongly encourage students to explore all other means of covering the cost of their final quarter while applying for Completion Grant support.
The Completion Grant was established to provide “last dollar” financial support students near completion who are experiencing enrollment-threatening financial hardship. This means that other sources of funding are considered before the Completion Grant can be utilized.
