Worry about exams, not tuition! In addition to the aid you receive from completing
the FAFSA or the TAFSA, San Jac offers many types of financial aid for students including
grants, scholarships, and student loans. Explore your options and make college affordable
The College Financing Plan (CFP) is an easy to read form that enables you to compare
institutions in terms of grant, scholarship offer amounts, student work, loan options
and other financial assistant options. You can access the San Jacinto College CFP

Grants and scholarships are valuable resources for funding your education. You could
call them education game changers. Not only do they not need to be repaid, but they
also open doors to other opportunities. Discover the benefits of grants and scholarships

Like grants, scholarships don’t have to be paid back. They’re given for financial
need, academic merit, and many other special criteria. Apply for a San Jac Foundation
