Federal Pell Grant
The federal Pell Grant is made available to students who have exceptional financial need as demonstrated through the FAFSA. An eligible student may receive an amount determined by need.
Federal Supplemental Education Opportunity Grant (SEOG)
SEOG may be available to students attending at least half time who receive Federal Pell Grants and who have the highest levels of financial need as demonstrated through the FAFSA. An eligible student may receive up to $400 per semester for full-time enrollment, $300 per semester for three-quarter enrollment, and $200 per semester for part-time enrollment. SEOG funding is limited and can be exhausted during the year, so not all students with the most financial need may receive SEOG funds. Students are encouraged to file the FAFSA as early as possible after October 1 to maximize chances of receiving this grant.
Teacher Education Assistance for College and Higher Education (TEACH) Grant
The federal TEACH Grant Program provides grants to students who intend to teach full-time in high-need subject areas for at least four years at schools that serve students from low-income families. IMPORTANT: If a student does not complete the service obligation of at least four complete academic years within eight years after completing (or ceasing enrollment in) the course of study for which he or she received the grant, all TEACH Grant funds received will be converted to a direct unsubsidized loan. The loan then must be repaid to the U.S. Department of Education, with interest charged from the date the TEACH Grant was disbursed. For extensive information on the TEACH Grant, please visit www.studentaid.ed.gov/types/grants-scholarships/teach or contact the Financial Aid Office. To determine if you meet eligibility requirements to receive the TEACH Grant, please review and complete this form.
