Federal Grants

Federal Pell Grants

Federal Pell Grants are awarded to undergraduate students pursuing their first undergraduate degree. Students enrolled in the fifth-year Teacher Credential program are not eligible to receive Federal Pell Grants. You may not receive Federal Pell Grant payments concurrently from more than one institution.

Students may receive up to 12 semesters (or 600% Lifetime Eligibility Used or LEU). Pell LEU is calculated by the enrollment status each semester; once the total used reaches 600% there will be no further eligibility. For more information regarding Federal Pell grants, visit studentaid.ed.gov.

Federal Supplemental Educational Opportunity Grants (FSEOG)

The Federal Supplemental Educational Opportunity Grant is awarded to undergraduate students with exceptional financial need. Students enrolled in the fifth-year Teacher Credential program are not eligible to receive FSEOG Grants. Students must be enrolled at least half-time to receive FSEO grants. Annual renewal of the Federal Supplemental Grant is not automatic; students must continue to meet eligibility requirements.
