Types of Aid

Federal Grants

Grants are generally considered aid that you do not have to repay. Grants include Federal Pell Grant and FSEOG (Federal Supplemental Educational Opportunity Grant). These grants are available to students that have not earned a bachelor's degree (or equivalent). Eligibility for Federal Pell Grant is determined per the federal formula that calculates the expected family contribution (EFC). Eligibility for FSEOG depends on availability of funds at the school and regulations require that it go to the neediest students. Amounts of Federal Pell Grant for the 2016-2017 school year may range from approximately $598 to $5198 per year. The maximum FSEOG is approximately $1,000 per year.

Legal residents of the state of Oklahoma may be eligible for the Oklahoma Tuition Aid Grant (OTAG). Application for this grant is made by completing the FAFSA. Eligibility for OTAG is determined by the state’s Oklahoma Tuition Aid Grant Office. Maximum eligibility is approximately $1,000 per year.
