Federal and State Aid

Federal Grants

Federal Pell Grant: This is a need-based grant and awards for the 2015-16 award year range from $626 to $5,775. Eligibility is determined by expected family contribution (EFC) as calculated on the FAFSA. This grant is available to full-time and less than full-time students.

Federal Supplemental Education Opportunity Grant (FSEOG): Awarded to Federal Pell Grant recipients with the lowest Expected Family Contribution (EFC) as determined by the FAFSA. Awards vary.

Federal Teach Grant: The TEACH Grant program provides up to $4,000 a year in grant assistance to an undergraduate or graduate student who agrees to serve for at least four years as a full-time teacher in a high-need field in a public or private elementary or secondary school that serves students from low-income families. A TEACH Grant recipient who does not complete their required teaching requirement within a specified time frame or fails to meet certain other requirements of the TEACH Grant program will be required to repay the TEACH Grant as a direct unsubsidized loan under the William D. Ford Federal Direct Loan Program. For more information visit the TEACH Grant program website.
