“800 On Us” … Del Mar College awarding $800 student grants to cover tuition and fees for Second 8-week Session this fall

Mon Oct 3, 2022

If your budget is really tight right now but you need to take a course during Del Mar College’s Second 8-week Session, you may qualify to receive an $800 grant toward your tuition and fees. And, the minimum credit hours you’re required to take is only three. That’s one class, but you can take more!

The funding opportunity is a campaign at the College, “800 On Us,” to encourage more students to take courses during the Second 8-week Session using money from the U.S. Department of Education as part of the Higher Education Emergency Relief Fund II (HEFRF II).

The $800 award is not a loan and is available for new, returning and currently enrolled students wanting to take additional courses this fall during the Second 8-week Session. However, Dual Credit students are not eligible.

Funding will go directly toward students’ tuition, fees and DMC Bookstore charges with any remaining award money refunded to the student on the financial aid disbursement date.
