Federal Supplemental Educational Opportunity Grant (FSEOG)

The Federal Supplemental Educational Opportunity Grant (SEOG) is a federal grant program based on extreme financial need for students who are Pell eligible.

At SFSC an eligible student may receive an SEOG of up to $200 per term. Students are automatically considered for this grant based on the results of the FAFSA. However, students with the greatest need and meeting our priority date of April 15 are awarded these limited funds first.

To be eligible for an SEOG, the student must meet these requirements each academic year:

  • Complete the FAFSA.
  • Your FAFSA should be processed by SFSC's Priority Deadline Date of April 15.  Funds are limited therefore, there is no guarantee you will receive these funds. Apply early! 
  • Be a U.S. Citizen or an eligible non-citizen.
  • Be a degree-seeking student (A.A., A.A.S., A.S., or bachelor's degree program) or in an eligible certificate program.  
  • Be enrolled in at least 6 credit hours or 8 PSAV credit hours per term.
  • Have a zero ($0) Expected Family Contribution, as determined by the FAFSA.
  • Have not have previously received a bachelor's degree.
  • Must not owe a repayment or be in default under any state or federal grant or loan program.
  • Must be meeting Satisfactory Academic Progress at SFSC.
