Grants

Most grants are awarded by the Financial Aid Office. The first step towards receiving a grant is completing the financial aid application process.

IMPORTANT INFO: 

The feds say no aid for non-essential courses.

The U.S. Department of Education is tightening rules for financial aid eligibility.  For courses to count for financial aid purposes, they must now be required courses listed on your degree audit.

Students can no longer take courses just to increase the amount of their financial aid.  The College’s computer system “knows” what courses are required for your major, and will base the amount of your financial aid only on those.  You may be enrolled in nine credit hours, but if a three-credit hour course is not required for your degree, the computer will calculate your aid on only six hours.

  If you have any questions as to what classes are required for your major, it is imperative that you consult with your faculty advisor or a success coach in the Student Success Center.

 

Federal Pell Grant

Up to $5920 (for the 2017-2018 year) per year based on degree of need and number of credit hours enrolled

12 or more credit hours is full time
9-11 hours is 3/4 time
6-8 hours is 1/2 time
1-5 hours is 1/4 time

 

Foundation Ambassador Grant

Awarded to eligible student ambassadors of the College (administered by the College Admissions Office)

 

Foundation Tom Carter Memorial Educational Aid Fund

Provides grants for students with financial emergency need (administered by the College Financial Aid Office)

 

Foundation S.N. and Ada Ford Emergency Aid Fund
