Student Loan Information Request
East Mississippi Community College is pleased to offer the following scholarships to its students. These scholarships have been established to help meet the cost of attending any EMCC campus or center.

Institutional scholarship requirements/information, excluding athletic or activity scholarships:
- The applicant must be a Mississippi resident enrolling as a full-time freshman (minimum of 12 semester credit hours) at EMCC for the first time in the fall semester.
- The applicant must maintain full-time enrollment each semester.
- The applicant must meet the required criteria of each specific scholarship for which they are applying.
- Scholarships are awarded for fall and spring semesters only (not summer) and are for either two or four consecutive semesters.
- Multiple scholarships can be applied to all direct costs (tuition, books, room and board). Fees (course/lab/registration, etc.) and/or fines cannot be covered by scholarships.
- No refunds will be given in the event scholarship amounts exceed direct costs.
- Transfer students must be Mississippi residents enrolled full-time in the fall semester and must meet the required criteria of each specific scholarship for which they are applying.
- Transfer students must present to the financial aid office a copy of all previous college academic transcripts and a copy of their ACT score (if applying for ACT related scholarships). All previous college course work will be used to determine, if grade point average requirements have been met, whether or not the course work is used in transfer.
- It is the student's responsibility to renew a scholarship from the previous year by completing the scholarship application again.
- The required grade point average (GPA) for each scholarship awarded must be maintained. If the GPA is not met, the student is placed on financial aid probation for one semester. If the GPA is not met following the probationary semester, the scholarship will be suspended. At the end of the suspension semester, if the required cumulative GPA is met, the scholarship will be reinstated. It is the responsibility of the student to reapply for scholarships following a suspension.
- Scholarship applications will not be accepted after the final day of registration for the fall semester.
No student will be permitted to receive Institutional Scholarships for classes being repeated in which he/she has received an original grade of C or higher. Note: Repeated courses in which the original grade is C or higher may not count toward the 12 semester credit hours required for Institutional Scholarships.
