Grants

Federal Pell Grant - The Federal Pell Grant is a federally funded program available to undergraduate students during the academic year. The amount of the award is determined by the student's financial need.

Please note, once a student has obtained a bachelor's degree, he/she is no longer eligible for the Federal Pell Grant. In addition, a student may only receive the equivalent of two full-time semesters of Federal Pell Grant during an academic year. Therefore, if you receive a full-time Federal Pell Grant for Fall and Spring semesters, you cannot receive a Federal Pell Grant during the Summer semester. However, if you are not enrolled full-time for both Fall and Spring semesters, you may have Pell eligibility for the Summer semester.

Federal Supplemental Educational Opportunity Grant (FSEOG) - The Federal SEOG provides funds for students with exceptional financial need. Please note, once a student has obtained a bachelor's degree, he/she is no longer eligible for the Federal SEOG Grant. Preference is given to Pell eligible students who have the lowest family contributions. Funding is limited.
