College could be FREE at JSCC!

Great news for North Carolina community college students! Qualifying students will receive up to $3,000 – more than the cost of full-time tuition! This means your tuition and fees at James Sprunt Community College could be completely covered!

Who is eligible?

To receive the Next NC Scholarship, you must be:

  • A North Carolina resident who is eligible for in-state tuition
  • A high school graduate (high school equivalency completers are eligible)
  • From a household with an annual Adjusted Gross Income (AGI) of $80,000 or less
  • Enrolled in an eligible undergraduate curriculum program for the 2024-2025 academic year
  • Taking at least 6 credit hours per semester (part-time students will receive a partial award)
  • Meeting the Satisfactory Academic Progress standards of the school you plan to attend
  • A student who has completed the 2024-2025 FAFSA, with a resulting Student Aid Index (SAI) at or below 7,500 (once complete, the financial aid office at the college/university you plan to attend will determine and confirm eligibility.)

How do I apply!

Applying is simple. Just submit the FAFSA form. If you’re eligible, you’ll receive the Next NC Scholarship. There are no additional forms to fill out. You can complete the FAFSA here.

What can I use the money for—and where can I use it?

Money awarded through the Next NC Scholarship can be used to cover expenses at James Sprunt Community College. That goes beyond tuition to include things like fees, books, food, and housing—making college more affordable than ever for many North Carolinians.
