Grants are financial aid that doesn’t have to be repaid.

PELL Grant

The PELL Grant is awarded based on financial need to students who have not earned a bachelor's or graduate degree.

PELL amounts are determined by

12 + Credits = Full-Time
9-11 Credits = 3/4 Time
6-8 Credits = Half Time
1-5 Credits = 1/4 Time
  • your financial need
  • your full-time or part-time student status
  • your attendance over the academic year.
PELL grants are limited to

Federal Supplemental Educational Opportunity Grant (FSEOG)

FSEOG funds are first come, first served. Students who will receive Federal Pell Grants and have the most financial need will receive FSEOGs first.
