Federal Supplemental Educational Opportunity Grant (FSEOG)

The FSEOG program awards funds to qualified students seeking their first bachelor’s degree. The university identifies FSEOG recipients, with awards going to students with the greatest need, as determined by the U.S. Department of Education.

Federal Work-Study Program (FWS)

In the FWS program, students with financial need, as determined by the U.S. Department of Education, work on campus or in community service.

Federal Stafford Student Loans

Loans, unlike grants or work-study, are borrowed money that must be repaid, with interest.

Subsidized Stafford Loans provide low interest rates and are available to students who demonstrate financial need based on income and other information provided on the FAFSA. A credit check is not required to receive these loans. The federal government pays the interest on these loans until six months after the student is no longer enrolled in school at least half-time.

Unsubsidized Stafford Loans provide low interest rates and are available to all students regardless of financial need. A credit check is not required to receive these loans. The student is responsible for the interest, which may be paid while the student is in school or accrued and then added to the principal balance when the student enters repayment. Loan repayment occurs six months after the student is no longer enrolled in school at least half-time.
