Stay the Course Scholarship Program

The Stay the Course scholarship initiative has been a successful program for JCC students who had completed 12 or more credit hours under the state-wide NC Career and College Promise program while enrolled in high school. We would like to express our thanks to the nearly one hundred students who chose JCC to further their academic studies and were able to benefit from this program.

Johnston Community College’s administration has made the difficult decision to discontinue this program due to depleted resources effective February 1, 2020.

Students who are currently receiving the Stay the Course scholarship for the Spring 2020 semester will be grandfathered in and granted their benefits based on eligibility criteria until their four continuous semesters (excluding summer) have been exhausted.  Johnston Community College’s administration hopes to create a similar program in future years pending availability of funding.

 Please view other scholarship opportunities offered at JCC by visiting  Through this portal students may apply for over $200,000 in scholarships specific to JCC. The JCC scholarship application will be open March 15-June 1.

Students are also encouraged to complete their FAFSA for federal and state assistance with tuition, fees, and textbooks.  Other opportunities for assistance includes tuition payment plans, work-study, VA Benefits, emergency loan funds for books, and Alternative Education Loans.

Remember to submit your FAFSA (Free Application for Federal Student Aid) at by May 1 and supporting documentation by June 1.
