There are three types of grants available through federal aid.
Grants do not need to be repaid in most cases.
For the 2015-2016 academic school year, qualifying students may receive up to the maximum of $5,775. Undergraduate students may receive up to 12 semesters of PELL (600%). The amount may be pro-rated based on the students’ eligibility and enrollment.
Federal Supplemental Educational Opportunity Grant (FSEOG)
Awarded through us to students with exceptional financial need. This is subject to availability of funds. An undergraduate student must have an EFC low enough to receive a Federal Pell Grant in order to be eligible for a Federal SEOG.
