GRANTS

Grants are awarded based on need and do not have to be repaid.  Federal, state, and institutional grants are available. In order to apply for aid, students must complete the FAFSA each academic year.  Eligible students will be considered for all types of need-based aid. Grants are renewable each year, provided that the recipient meets each award’s specified criteria and submits updated documentation annually. In order to maintain eligibility, students must maintain certain qualifications as outlined by the Satisfactory Academic Progress Policy and/or the qualifications as outlined by the specific grant program awarded.

 

FEDERAL GRANTS


Pell Grant 
The Pell Grant is awarded to students who have demonstrated exceptional financial need and who have not earned a bachelor's degree.  Award amounts are based on the expected family contribution (EFC) as determined annually by the U.S. Department of Education. Award amounts can change yearly, and are prorated based on enrollment status. 

Public Law 112-74 signed into law on December 23, 2011, reduces the maximum period for which a student may receive Pell Grants to 12 full-time semesters.  This includes all semesters that Pell funds were received at other institutions.


Supplemental Educational Opportunity Grant (SEOG)
The SEOG Grant is awarded to students who have demonstrated exceptional financial need and who have not earned a bachelor's degree. Award amounts are based on the expected family contribution (EFC) as determined annually by the U.S. Department of Education. Amounts can change yearly, and are prorated based on enrollment status.  It is a campus-based federal program and funding is limited to amounts allocated by the Department of Education. 
  





Teach 
Through the College Cost Reduction and Access Act of 2007, Congress created the Teacher Education Assistance for College and Higher Education (TEACH) Grant Program that provides grants to students who intend to teach in a public or private elementary or secondary school that served students from low-income families.
