Governor's Scholarship Program - Golden State ScholarShare
If you have been awarded a California Governor's Scholars Award or a Governor's Math and Science Award (aka, Golden State ScholarShare scholarship), congratulations on your achievement! If you want to use it at Fullerton College and don’t know what to do next, you have come to the right place. Just follow this procedure:
How to Use Your Golden State ScholarShare Award at Fullerton College
Complete a qualified withdrawal form* and mail it to the address indicated on the form. Do not mail it to Fullerton College . Click HERE to get the form.
*In Section 2 of the withdrawal form, please have the check made payable to Fullerton College and sent to the attention of the Bursar’s Office at 321 E. Chapman Ave., Fullerton, CA 92832.
It generally takes about three weeks from the day you mail your withdrawal form to receive your scholarship funds from Golden State ScholarShare, but it can take longer, so be sure to allow plenty of time. Once we have received your scholarship money, you can use it to pay for enrollment and optional fees when you register for classes. You can also allocate all or a portion of your ScholarShare funds to use at the Fullerton College Bookstore for textbooks and class supplies. Conditions and restrictions apply, so please contact John Miller in the Bursar’s Office for details.
In addition, you can be reimbursed from your ScholarShare funds for paid registration fees from previous semesters. If you bought textbooks and supplies for your classes (even from an off-campus source), you can be reimbursed for those too, but you must provide original receipts to the Bursar’s Office. Sorry, Fullerton College does not reimburse for room, board, and transportation. See John in the Bursar’s Office to process your reimbursement or for more information.
Your scholarship is available to you year round, and upon written request, any remaining funds will be returned to the Golden State ScholarShare Program for use at another college or university.
The Bursar's Office administers scholarship funds awarded by other organizations. Please have your scholarship check AND disbursement instructions sent to the Bursar's Office. Contact John Miller in the Bursar's Office before you register for classes to see if your scholarship funds have arrived and for important information on how to access your scholarship funds.
