Grants for College Tuition
Eligibility for grant aid is based on financial need as determined through information provided on the FAFSA. Grant awards are given to qualifying students and, except under extremely limited conditions, do not need to be repaid.
The two largest grant programs are:
- Federal Pell Grant — Available almost exclusively to undergraduates and all eligible students will receive the Federal Pell Grant amount they qualify based on financial need. Estimated annual awards range from $598 to $5815 (2016-2017) and these grants are prorated based on the number of enrolled credit hours.
- Ohio College Opportunity Grant — This is a grant that may be offered to students who are Ohio residents. These grants are also prorated based on full or part-time enrollment status
