Federal Pell Grants:
Pell Grants are the primary gift-aid program (gift-aid is aid that is provided with no expectation of repayment) offered by the federal government. Eligibility is based on financial need which is determined by the Department of Education through the FAFSA process.
If your financial circumstances have changed and the income reported on the FAFSA does not accurately portray your ability to pay for school, you can visit with the financial aid office and request a review of your FAFSA data to see if using a more recent tax year would help you qualify for aid. In addition, if parent information is required on your FAFSA, but you are unable to have your parents complete the FAFSA, please visit with the financial aid office.
Federal Supplemental Educational Opportunity Grant (FSEOG):
FSEOG is a gift-aid program offered through federal and institutional sources. Eligibility is determined by the availability of funds and financial need which is determined by the Department of Education through the FAFSA process. Priority is given to Pell Grant recipients.
