How to Apply
SCHOLARSHIP APPLICATION DEADLINE IS MARCH 1

Students interested in specific activity scholarships should also contact the departments listed in the activity scholarship descriptions concerning interviews, auditions or departmental scholarship applications if applicable.
Students who wish to be considered for scholarships at South Plains College must follow these general guidelines when submitting scholarship applications.
- Carefully complete the scholarship application, making sure to answer all questions to the best of your ability. Incomplete applications will not be considered.
- Applicants must be eligible for admission to SPC in accordance with existing policies found in this General Catalog.
- Most scholarships require enrollment as a full-time student (12 semester hours minimum) while some are open to part-time students (6 semester hours minimum). All students who plan to enroll in six or more semester hours are encouraged to apply for a scholarship.
- Incoming new students and high school dual credit students must include a current official transcript. The transcript must contain a listing of all high school courses and grades earned through the fall semester of the senior year. It must also include a listing of current spring courses being taken, estimated class rank, class total, and ACT or SAT scores (ACT preferred). The transcript must accompany the application.
- Incoming new students and high school dual credit students must submit ACT or SAT scores (ACT preferred) taken their junior or senior year in high school in order to be considered for college-wide scholars awards and scholarship programs and some program-specific scholarships. Verification of the scores must appear on official transcripts or as copies of the original score report. Documentation of ACT or SAT scores must accompany the application.
- Currently enrolled college students and transfer students who have completed at least 12 hours of college'level work (excluding dual credit taken in high school) are not required to submit ACT/SAT scores. However, applicants must submit an official transcript from each college attended as of the date of the application. Transcripts must accompany the application.
- Currently enrolled college students must have a minimum cumulative grade point average of 2.50 for receiving scholarships. Some scholarship programs require a 3.00 cumulative GPA for currently enrolled students.
- Certain program specific and activity scholarships require a personal interview, audition or separate application. These requirements should be scheduled through the appropriate department before the application deadline.
It is the student's responsibility to ensure that all required materials and documentation, such as complete transcripts and verification of ACT or SAT scores, accompany the completed scholarship application and are received by the Scholarship Office prior to the application deadline. When possible, the Scholarship Office will attempt to notify the applicant of incomplete documentation. However, as a rule, the Scholarship Office cannot guarantee notification of incomplete scholarship files, especially when applications are received on or shortly before the deadline date. Students are encouraged to submit scholarship applications and required materials early in the process and to contact the Scholarship Office before the deadline date to verify receipt of all necessary materials and documentation. You may contact the office via e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org, or call (806) 716-2219.
