Federal Supplemental Educational Opportunity Grant (SEOG)

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

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 SCF's deadline date. 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.
  • Student must be enrolled in at least 6 credit hours.
  • Have not previously received a bachelor's degree.
  • Must not owe a repayment or be in default under any state or federal grant or loan program.

Financial Assistance Services will verify your eligibility based on the information submitted on your FAFSA.
