Important Update to Scholarship Contract Requirement

As you know to complete Scholarship Contract requirements during COVID-19, we have allowed an email directly from your advisor letting us know you all meet via web EX or by telephone. This requirement has not changed and is still valid. 

For the Financial Literacy Module, we are still allowing for completion of the I-grad module up until June 30th. After this date, the I-grad system will be going away. We will have a new platform, in which you will also complete a module of your choice and provide complete documentation to scholarships@ccd.edu. Please follow this link to the NEW MODULE PLATFORM to get started on the requirement.
