CalGrant GPA Submissions

Electronic GPA Submission

  • Attended SMC in the last 10 years

  • Completed 16 or more degree applicable units

  • SMC submits these GPA files to the Cal Grant Program two times each year:

    • on or before March 2nd

    • on or before September 2nd

What if I don't meet the above criteria?

  • Students who have not earned 16 units of degree applicable coursework at the college level, need to have their GPA verified by their high school.

  • For SMC students that have earned less than 16 degree applicable units at SMC, but (when factoring in-transfer coursework) do have at least 16 units. SMC Financial Aid will do a manual GPA assessment. However, SMC must receive official transcripts at least one week before the Cal Grant deadline in either March or September.
