Federal grants are considered "gift-aid" and do not need to be repaid. To apply, new and current students should submit the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). Note that funding for some grants is limited and students should submit the FAFSA by February 15th for priority consideration.
Pell Grants are awarded to undergraduates who have not earned a bachelor’s or graduate degree. The amount can change yearly and is pro-rated based on credit load.
Federal Supplemental Educational Opportunity Grant (FSEOG)
The Federal Supplemental Educational Opportunity Grant may be awarded to full-time (12 credits per semester) undergraduates with exceptional financial need who meet the February 15th FAFSA priority date. Funding is limited and priority is given to Pell Grant recipients.
