Pell Grants are determined by a federal formula that considers the financial information submitted by the student and parent(s) on the FAFSA application and the number of credit hours the student is enrolled in as of the end of the first week of classes each semester. PELL grants are applied to student bills each semester and are pro-rated for students who enroll in less than 12 credits/semester.
Supplemental Educational Opportunity Grants (SEOG) are awarded to students with exceptional financial need who are eligible to receive a Federal Pell Grant. Due to limited SEOG funding, eligible students who file the FAFSA application by March 1st receive priority consideration for these funds. This grant is credited to students’ bills for the fall and spring semesters by the financial aid office and may be adjusted for changes in level of enrollment.
