FEDERAL PELL GRANT
Program for students with documented financial need as determined through the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). The Pell Grant is money that the student does not need to repay. The student must be making satisfactory academic progress and must also meet the additional eligibility requirements outlined in the Eligibility Requirements section. Applicants with the equivalent of a Bachelor's Degree from anywhere in the world are not eligible for this grant. The enrollment status of the student i.e. full-time, three-quarter time or half-time will have a proportional effect on the amount of money the student may receive.

Program designed for students showing exceptional need and Federal Pell Grant eligibility. This is also a program that does not have to be repaid. Awards average $500. Funds are awarded to eligible students on a first-come, first-serve basis until funds are exhausted. Applicants with the equivalent of a Bachelor's Degree are not eligible for this grant.
lEVERAGING EDUCATIONAL ASSISTANCE PARTNERSHIP (LEAP) AND SPECIAL LEVERAGING EDUCATIONAL ASSISTANCE PARTNERSHIP (SLEAP)

The SLEAP Program is an additional component of the LEAP Program. To be eligible for assistance under LEAP or SLEAP programs, students must also meet the general eligibility requirements for the FSA programs and the additional eligibility criteria that state higher education agencies establish.
