Federal Pell Grant
The Federal Pell Grant is a need-based federal grant to promote access to postsecondary education, and is awarded to low- and middle-income undergraduate students who have not yet earned a bachelor's or professional degree. Students must meet basic eligibility requirements. Grant amounts are based on the student's expected family contribution, or EFC (see Determining Financial Aid Eligibility), and enrollment level at the Federal Pell Grant Census Date. The maximum annual award is $6,895 in the 2022-2023 award year, and the maximum annual award is $7,395 in the 2023-2024 award year. Students are limited to receiving the equivalent of 12 full-time semesters of Federal Pell Grant.
Authorization of Federal Pell Grant awards are based on enrollment levels, and are also subject to the Federal Pell Grant Census Date. To review the enrollment level requirements and Census Dates, please visit our Policies page.

The FSEOG is a federal grant awarded to students who demonstrate financial need, meet the basic eligibility requirements, and qualify for a Federal Pell Grant. FSEOG funding is limited; therefore, priority is given to students who have the lowest EFC.

- 50% for half-time (6-8.99 credits)
- 0% for less than half-time (0.25 to 5.99 credits).
