SGA Green Door Scholarships are offered to DACA and undocumented students by the TMCC Student Government Association (SGA). Eligibility is based on completion of the Institutional Methodology form, enrollment in a minimum of 3 degree eligible credits, and enrollment in math or English each semester until the degree requirements are met in both of those subjects. The award is $300 per semester for up to two semesters per academic year.
Institution, State, and Federal Scholarships
There are some scholarships made available to students in the form of grants when they complete the FAFSA.

Off-Campus (External) Scholarships
There are many students who have been awarded a scholarship from an outside agency and want to apply their award to their costs of attending TMCC. In most instances, the organization granting the award mails a check to the Financial Aid Office, indicating the student’s name and NSHE ID number in the memo line.
Students seeking external scholarships have many resources. Our External Scholarship Board is available both online and in person at the Financial Aid Office. Additionally, scholarship workshops are held throughout the year; please check the TMCC Events Calendar.
Scholarships for eligible Native Americans are offered through the individual tribes and some national organizations. Students initiate the application process by contacting their respective tribal office.
