A Scholars Program application is separate from the Santa Monica College Admissions Application. While International students are welcome to apply to the Program and will receive many of the Program’s benefits, UCLA does not extend priority consideration for non-residents at this time.
The application period for Summer/Fall 2014 begins Monday, March 17th. The deadline to submit complete application packets is Monday, July 7th. The sooner you apply, the better your opportunity of adding select Scholars classes.
The following materials will be required:
Complete the Scholars Program Application. The application is a fillable PDF. Please complete all sections, print, sign and date. (Note: Application forms from previous application cycles will not be accepted)
One letter of recommendation from an instructor, counselor, principal, etc.
A 500 word typed essay with your name in the top right corner. Address the following topic: Who you were, who you are, and who you would like to be.
A copy of transcripts from all schools attended. Unofficial transcripts are acceptable for applications to Scholars only. Failure to declare ALL COLLEGE TRANSCRIPTS will jeopardize admission to the Program.
Verification of English 1 eligibility. Provide a printed copy of SMC English assessment score OR AP English exam score 3 or higher OR proof of previous college English Composition course.
Grade Check Forms* (if applicable).
ALL required documents must be submitted together in one packet.
If needed, AP exam scores may be ordered through College Board.
Grade Check Forms are used for the following circumstances:
NOTE: Students with more than 12 college units completed simply need to submit a copy of the transcript (unofficial is fine).
