To qualify for the NM Lottery Scholarship at SFCC, you must complete your qualifying semester of 12 credit hours or more (full-time at SFCC) with a 2.5 GPA. Students with a Disability Waiver must complete 6-12 credit hours with a 2.5 GPA. When you successfully complete the qualifying semester, you will be awarded the NM Lottery Scholarship the very next semester.
To establish eligibility for the NM Lottery scholarship at SFCC, a student must complete their qualifying semester within sixteen months of high school graduation or completion of a high school equivalency credential. The SFCC qualifying semester is triggered when a student enrolls in 12 or more credit hours during that 16-month period. For example, if you enroll in 6 credit hours in fall 2021 after graduation and 12 credit hours the following spring, spring 2022 will be your qualifying semester.
No. You can attend 6-11 credit hours as long as you visit with Accessibility Services to get a disability waiver. Starting with your qualifying semester, a disability waiver must be submitted to the Financial Aid Office before the end of the third week each semester.
You are eligible for the NM Lottery for three semesters at a 2-year college and an additional four semesters at a 4-year college. If you are working under a disability waiver, you have 14 consecutive semesters of part-time enrollment with no more than seven semesters at a 2-year college.
