Federal Pell Grant
The Pell Grant is a federal grant based on financial need as determined by completing the FAFSA. Eligible students may receive up to $5,730 for the year, depending on need and hours enrolled each semester. A student’s eligibility for the Pell Grant may change each year based on the Estimated Family Contribution (EFC) which the school receives from the Institutional Student Information Report (SAR). If a student is selected for verification, this grant may also change depending on the results of verification.
Federal Supplemental Educational Opportunity Grant (SEOG)
SEOG is a federal grant reserved for full-time students who receive the Pell Grant. Students must complete the FAFSA to be considered. Award amounts up to $1,000 a year. This fund is very limited so completing the FAFSA early is encouraged. This grant is not guaranteed and is renewed each year based on funding and student eligibility.
Federal College Work-Study
Federal Work-Study is awarded to students who have completed the FAFSA and have financial need. This fund is very limited so completing the FAFSA early is encouraged. Federal Work-Study is not guaranteed and is renewed each year based on the student's eligibility.
Students must apply their work-study checks to their account in order for the aid to be applied to their tuition charges.
Students who have been awarded Federal Work-Study on their financial aid award letter will be notified during the summer of the additional information required to secure a job on campus. Work-Study is considered part-time student employment; therefore, the wages earned are taxed. All work-study related questions should be directed to the Student Employment Coordinator at 843-863-8067.
