The Federal Supplemental Educational Opportunity Grant (SEOG) is a federal grant program based on extreme financial need for students who are Pell eligible.
At SPC, 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. Students with the greatest need are awarded these limited funds.
To be eligible for an SEOG, the student must meet these requirements each academic year:
- Complete a FAFSA.
- Your FAFSA should be processed by SPC's Priority Deadline Date of May 1. Funds are limited. There is no guarantee you will receive these funds. You must apply early.
- Be a U.S. Citizen or an eligible non-citizen.
- Be a degree-seeking student (A.A., A.S., or bachelor's degree program) or enrolled in a financial assistance eligible certificate program.
- Be enrolled in at least 6 credit hours per term.
- Students are awarded in this order (due to high demand and limited funding, it is very rare that SPC awards anyone beyond group 1)
- Have a zero ($0) Expected Family Contribution as determined by the FAFSA and are awarded a Federal Pell Grant.
- Have a non-zero Pell-eligible Expected Family Contribution as determined by the FAFSA and are awarded a Federal Pell Grant.
- Have a non-zero Pell-eligible Expected Family Contribution as determined by the FAFSA, but have already reached the maximum Pell Grant Lifetime Eligibility Used (LEU).
- 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 SPC.
Financial Assistance Services will verify your eligibility based on the information submitted on your FAFSA.
