These grants are awarded based on a student's Expected Family Contribution, Cost of Attendance, and Enrollment Status, and generally do not need to be repaid. For the 2010-2011 year, Pell Grant amounts will range from $1,176 to $5,550. Award amounts are not affected by other aid sources.
These grants are awarded to undergraduate students with exceptional financial need, as determined by the Expected Family Contribution. Recipients of the Federal Pell Grant are given preference for FSEOG awards, which range from $100 to $4,000 per year.

Students must meet certain criteria in order to apply for a Higher ED Grant.
All students who have submitted a valid Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) will be considered for Federal Pell Grant, Supplemental Educational Opportunity Grant, ACG, and SMART eligibility.
