Grants are awarded by federal, state and institutional sources and do not have to be paid back. Grants are based on financial need and require that you complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA).

Federal Pell Grant

The Federal Pell Grant is gift assistance based on financial need that does not need to be repaid. Pell Grants are considered a foundation of federal financial aid, to which aid from other federal and non-federal sources might be added. For an in-depth explanation of the terms and conditions, please visit the Pell Grant Web page

Federal Supplemental Educational Opportunity Grant (FSEOG)

The FSEOG is a need-based federal grant awarded to undergraduates seeking a first undergraduate degree in an eligible program who have exceptional financial need. The award amount at Seminole State varies by enrollment and allocation. Priority is given to students with an Estimated Family Contribution (EFC) of "0" who apply for financial aid early. Limited funding is available in this program, and funding is awarded on a first come, first served basis. Recipients are chosen based on EFC and application date, and funds are usually not available to late applicants. Initial awards are estimated based on the results of the FAFSA and assume a full-time enrollment. Estimates may change if any criteria used to determine eligibility, such as major, degree status, satisfactory progress, and income or family contribution changes. Actual payment will not be determined until after the add/drop period has ended and classes have begun. The amount actually paid to you from the FSEOG will be prorated if you enroll for less than 12 credit hours in a given term. You must attend all of your classes on the first day of each term. If you are withdrawn for non-attendance prior to the actual payment of FSEOG funds, payment for the withdrawn class(es) will not be made.

Florida Student Assistance Grant (FSAG)

FSAG is a need-based program for students who meet Florida residency requirements. To qualify, you must:

  • Be seeking your first undergraduate degree
  • Be enrolled in an A.A. or A.S. degree program
  • Qualify for a Federal Pell Grant
  • Enroll for a minimum of six credit hours

Priority is given to qualified renewal students and full-time students with high unmet financial need who apply for financial aid early. Limited funding is available in this program, and funding is awarded on a first come, first served basis. Recipients are chosen based on EFC and application date, and funds are usually not available to late applicants. Initial awards are estimated based on the results of the FAFSA. Estimates will change if any criteria used to determine your eligibility, such as residency, major, degree status, satisfactory progress, income or family information changes. Actual payment will not be determined until after the add/drop period has ended and classes have begun. The amount actually paid to you from the FSAG will be prorated if you enroll for less than 12 credit hours in a given term. You must attend all of your classes on the first day of each term. If you are withdrawn for non-attendance prior to the actual payment of FSAG funds, payment for the withdrawn class(es) will not be made. FSAG is available for fall and spring terms only.
