FULTON, Miss. (WTVA) -- 2013 graduates in Itawamba Community College’s five-county district are encouraged to apply for the County Guaranteed Tuition programs before the July 31 deadline.
GED recipients from Chickasaw, Itawamba, Monroe and Pontotoc counties are also eligible.
Students in Chickasaw, Itawamba, Lee, Monroe and Pontotoc counties should meet several requirements that are listed on the applications which may be obtained on ICC’s website, http://www.iccms.edu
, or in the financial aid offices on both the Fulton and Tupelo campuses, according to Bob Walker, ICC director of Financial Aid.
Recipients must pass a minimum of 12 credit hours each semester with a 2.0 GPA to continue eligibility.
Walker said that students who receive full academic scholarships to ICC should also apply for the county guaranteed tuition program. “If something happens after the fall semester and students are no longer eligible for academic scholarships in the spring, it’s possible that they may receive county tuition assistance for the spring if they passed 12 hours with a 2.0 GPA if they applied by the July 31 deadline.”
