The Federal Pell Grant program is designed to guarantee low and middle-income students, who are eligible for aid, financial access to the college of their choice. For eligible students, Federal Pell Grants are intended to be the floor or the base upon which eligibility for all other aid is determined. Federal grants do not need to be repaid.
The FSEOG award is available to students with exceptional need and gives priority to Federal Pell Grant recipients. In determining student eligibility, the College will base the selection on procedures designed to make FSEOG awards to those students with the lowest expected family contribution (EFC) who will also receive Federal Pell Grant in that award year.
The amount of the grant and the number of students who may receive this grant depends on the availability of annual funds from the U.S. Department of Education.
Application for the FWS program may be made through Financial Services. Student eligibility is based on financial need and the availability of annual funds. The College will attempt to place students in jobs related to their program of study, and work schedules will be arranged according to class schedules.
The Military Grant program is available exclusively to qualifying service members and their immediate family members. Immediate family members (dependent children as defined by the Department of Education or spouse) of a service member may be eligible. An individual may not receive dual benefits. This institutional grant is made available by the College through funds appropriated in the operational budget and approved by the executive committee. The applicant must provide documentation distinguishing the type of eligible service as well as an honorable standing or discharge. Valid documents include a Form DD-214 or a Statement of Service along with a valid Military ID. Individual disbursements will be scheduled in even amounts throughout the length of the program and will be applied to tuition, books, and fees. The institution may not award a stipend to any grant recipient and reserves the right to reduce the grant award amount based upon the financial need of each individual student. For the purposes of this grant, financial need is calculated by subtracting the total direct institutional costs from all other available aid. Students requesting additional loans for personal use and expenses may not be eligible to receive this grant. Eligible recipients may not receive other sources of institutional aid. A student is required to maintain Satisfactory Academic Progress as required for federal student aid and as defined by the College SAP policy in order to continue receiving additional aid. Grant amounts are:
|Associate Degree Program||Bachelor’s Degree Program|
