Institutional Scholarships

Student Government Association (SGA) Waiver for Officers

Student Government Association waivers of in-state tuition, exclusive of student self-assessed fees may be granted to the SGA Executive Officers and Senators. These officers include SGA President, SGA Vice-President, SGA Secretary/Treasurer, and SGA Senators. These positions require mandatory office hours.

5 For 6 Scholarship

Students who are currently enrolled in the Center for Adult Development, who are in good standing with the WorkReady U program, and who wish to begin work on their postsecondary education prior to obtaining a high school diploma (or equivalency), but are unable to pass an approved Ability-to-Benefit (ATB) test, must bear the financial burden of paying for 6 credit hours (or 225 clock hours). The ATB provisions allow students without a high school diploma (or equivalency) to gain access to Title IV funding if they are enrolled in an eligible career pathway program and can complete the following:

  • Pass an independently administered Department of Education approved ATB test; or
  • Complete at least 6 credit hours (or 225 clock hours) that are applicable toward a degree (remedial coursework credit will not count) or certificate offered by a Title IV institution.

For those students who do not pass the ATB test and are therefore not eligible for federal financial aid, the 5 for 6 Scholarship may be an option.

The 5 for 6 Scholarship is designed to help defray costs by covering the tuition and non-course-specific fees for 6 credit hours of non-remedial coursework. To be eligible to receive the 5 for 6 Scholarship aid, students:

  • Must be enrolled in the Center for Adult Development and be in good standing with the WorkReady U program;
  • Must be ready to pursue an eligible career pathway;
  • Have NOT received federal financial aid in the past;
  • Do NOT currently qualify for federal financial aid;
  • Have NOT earned an Ability to Benefit (ATB) qualifying score on Accuplacer

Louisiana National Guard Tuition Waiver

The Louisiana National Guard provides a tuition waiver to students who are active members in good standing. The amount of the award is normally the cost of tuition and does not include student self-assessed fees, books and supplies. Exemptions may be claimed for five separate academic years or until the receipt of a bachelor’s degree, whichever occurs first. Students must appear on the eligible State Tuition Exemption Program (STEP) list and be in academic good standing.

Louisiana Vocational Rehabilitation Grants

Vocational Rehabilitation provides assistance with educational costs for students with permanent disabilities that constitute a job handicap. This program usually covers the expense of tuition and fees. Eligibility is based on an individual with a disability benefiting from vocational rehabilitation services in terms of achieving employment, including supported employment. Students may apply at the Monroe Regional Office, 122 St. John St., Suite 311, Monroe, LA 71201 or call 318-362-3232 or 1-800-737-2973.

Veterans Benefits

Children (not less than 16 years but no more than 25 years of age), spouses, and surviving dependents of deceased or disabled veterans are eligible for tuition exemption. All eligible students must apply with Veterans Affairs (VA) in order to obtain the exemption. After registration, the VA Coordinator certifies the enrollment of students with the Department of Veteran’s Affairs, provided you have completed all the required forms. Students should contact the VA Coordinator in the Registrar's Office to complete the paperwork required for monthly VA benefits. Students must maintain satisfactory academic progress in order to be certified for VA benefits. Students should review the Academic Policies section concerning probation and suspension for more information.

WIOA (Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act)

As one of several financial aid options offered to students, we have seen many take advantage of Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act funding to reinvent them selves in the workforce.

  • What is WIOA? The WIOA was enacted July 2014 to replace the Workforce Investment Act (WIA). The federal grant covers training expenses for individuals who have been laid off or whose household income is at or below the federal poverty level. It's designed to benefit job seekers, laid-off workers, older youth, incumbent workers, new entrant to the workforce, veterans, person with disabilities and employers.

  • How does WIOA work? WIOA seeks to increase employment, retention and earnings of their participants. Each participant is directed toward in-demand occupations, and we will train individuals for those industries.

  • What type of training does WIOA fund? The program funds high-demand occupations such as healthcare, technology, finance, and manufacturing. We offer funding for professional certificate programs to provide student relevant training to re-enter the workforce.

  • What are the qualifications for WIOA funding? General requirements for participation in the program include; being employed, obtaining U.S. citizenship or lawful, permanent residency, having registered for selective service (if male), or being a veteran and lower-level income status.

  • How do I become a participant in WIOA training? For more information or to apply for WIOA grant, contact the Business & Career Solutions Career for the parish in which you reside. You can find a list of BCSC's and contact information at
