The Federal Supplemental Educational Opportunity Grant (FSEOG) program was created to support low-income students. Funds from the U.S. Department of Education are allocated to the College and then awards are made to eligible students by the Financial Aid Office. Funding is limited and the guidelines for awards are established each year based on the amount of funds the College receives and the financial need of students.
The Financial Aid Team considers three primary factors when making FSEOG grants. These include:
- Receipt of a Federal Pell Grant award during the same award year
- Exceptional financial need, as determined by the EFC on their FAFSA
- High number of college credits per semester
In addition to the conditions above, you must maintain SAP and meet all other eligibility criteria for financial aid. Other factors we consider:
- Other gift aid awarded, such as tuition waivers, scholarships, veterans benefits, etc.
- Number of prior semesters that a student was awarded FSEOG
- Cumulative GPA of at least 2.50, and most recent semester GPA
