SMC electronically submits to the Cal Grant program the GPA for all students who have:

  • 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 2
  • on or before September 2

Note #1: 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.

 

Note #2: 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 can 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. Please see the following steps for requesting a Cal Grant Manual GPA Calculation.
