Grants

A grant is a form of financial aid that does not need to be repaid. It is often based on financial need and can be restricted to a select population of students.

Federal Pell Grant

The Federal Pell Grant is a federal grant for undergraduate students who have not yet earned a bachelor's degree. Student applicants must meet eligibility requirements for federal student aid, such as  Satisfactory Academic Progress (SAP) requirements. For the 2014-2015 aid year (Summer 2014 - Spring 2015), students must have an Expected Family Contribution (EFC), as determined by the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA), between 0 and 5157.

How to Apply Student must complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA).

  • For 3/4-time enrollment (9 to 11 undergraduate credit hours): $2,149 per semester
  • For half-time enrollment (6 to 8 undergraduate credit hours): $1,433 per semester
