Tuition & AidGrants
Grants are need-based awards that do not have to be repaid. The most common grant programs are funded through the U.S. Department of Education including the Federal Pell Grant Program. There are also some grants which are funded through private organizations and professional associations.
Federal Pell Grant
Federal Pell Grants are available to students who demonstrate eligibility as determined by the Federal government. Students who are enrolled full-time, three-quarter time, half-time and less than half-time may qualify if the Expected Family Contribution (EFC) meets the standards established by the Federal government.
Federal Supplemental Education Opportunity Grants (FSEOG)
Federal Supplemental Education Opportunity Grants (FSEOG) are awarded to students from funds made available by the Federal government for students with exceptional need. This grant is usually awarded to students who receive the Federal Pell Grant. Grants will vary in amount, with the smallest FSEOG valued at $200. Students must be enrolled at least half-time (6 credit hours) to receive this award
Florida Student Assistance Grant (FSAG)
Florida Student Assistance Grant (FSAG) is a need-based grant awarded for educational purposes to Florida residents who demonstrate exceptional need and who are enrolled full-time by the end of the regular drop/add period. Funds are limited and the Financial Aid Office will notify eligible students.
The Part-time Florida Student Assistance Grant (FSAG) provides funds to students that are enrolled less than full-time, but at least half-time or more. Funds are prorated based on the number of hours the student attends (half-time or three-quarter-time). Students must complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) and meet the State guidelines for FSAG. Other than the amount the student is eligible for and the number of hours the student must complete for continued eligibility, all other terms and conditions for receipt of full-time FSAG apply.
The Florida Student Assistance Grant – Certificate Students (FSAG-CE) is a need-based grant awarded for educational purposes to Florida residents who are enrolled in certificate programs. Funds are limited; the Financial Aid Office will notify eligible students.
