Federal Pell Grant Program

Pell Grants are awarded solely on demonstrated financial need to every eligible undergraduate student who hasn't already earned a bachelor's or professional degree. Pell Grants do not need to be repaid. They can be used for tuition, fees, and living expenses. A student is still eligible to receive a Pell Grant if he/she is attending college in a less than half time status.  It is important that students receiving Federal Pell Grants understand how they are disbursed and how a student remains eligible for this program.

For the 2023-24 award year, the maximum award is $7,394

Federal Supplemental Educational Opportunity Grant Program (FSEOG)

The Financial Aid Office awards the FSEOG to undergraduate students who have exceptional financial need, with priority given to Pell Grant recipients.

These grants don't need to be paid back.  It is important that students receiving FSEOG understand how they are disbursed and how a student remains eligible for this program.

To get an FSEOG, you must complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA®) for your college to determine your financial need.
