Grants are sources of aid that students do not have to pay back. The funds come from the U.S. Department of Education.

Federal Pell Grant

The Federal Pell Grant is a need-based federal grant awarded to low and middle income undergraduate students who have not yet earned a bachelor's or professional degree to promote access to postsecondary education. Students must meet basic eligibility requirements. Grant amounts are based on the student's expected family contribution, or EFC (see Calculating Need), and enrollment level with a maximum annual award of $5,920 during the 2017-2018 year. Students are limited to receiving the equivalent of 12 full-time semesters of Federal Pell Grant.

Authorization of Federal Pell Grant awards are based on enrollment levels, and are also subject to the Federal Pell Grant Census Date. To review the enrollment level requirements and Census Dates, please visit our Policies page.

Federal Supplemental Educational Opportunity Grant (FSEOG)

The FSEOG is a federal grant awarded to students who demonstrate financial need, meet the basic eligibility requirements, and qualify for a Federal Pell Grant. FSEOG funding is limited; therefore, priority is given to students who have the lowest EFC.
