​"Auto-Match" vs "Apply to" scholarships

Our new system will "Auto-Match" your General Application & imported ​applicant information with Shasta College scholarship opportunities. These will be listed on your recommended opportunities page through AcademicWorks. 
 
Auto-Match Scholarships:
Use the general application information only, your completed general application will be considered for these opportunities
 
Apply-To Scholarships:
These will have an "Apply" button to the right of the scholarship information. Before your application can be considered for these scholarships, you must click on the "Apply" button and answer supplemental questions. These supplemental questions will determine if your application will be considered.

References:                No more paper reference letters!

You must obtain the email address of the person you wish to use as a reference. 
 
The General Application only requires 2 references; however, some scholarship opportunities require 3 letters of recommendation or may require letters from certain sources. 
 
DO NOT EMAIL YOUR REFERENCES UNTIL:
You have completed all the Apply-to scholarship questions and have carefully read the scholarship criteria to be sure you have submitted the correct reference "letter" types.
