The school says its new "21Forward" scholarship is a gift to the class of 2021. Students' entire tuitions are being paid by a generous private donation.
It's a three-year scholarship, so students may attend full- or part-time with a six-credit hour minimum.
You can earn an associate degree or workforce certificate with the scholarship, but there are a few eligibility requirements.
