Federal Grants (Pell, SEOG)

Federal grants are free and do not need to be repaid.  Not all students qualify for the Pell and SEOG grants.  Pell Grants are based on a 600% Lifetime Eligibility.

State Grants

State grants are also free and do not need to be repaid.  State grant amounts are based upon federal income-tax information.  You must complete the FAFSA (Free Application for Federal Student Aid) form and return it by March 1 to qualify for state grants.  Log on to estudent at www.ssaci.in.gov for State Grant award information.  Students will be required to meet GPA requirements.

All state and federal aid is granted according to need based on your federal income tax information.  The dollar value of federal and state grants credited to your account will depend on the number of credit hours you are taking.  If you withdraw from school after the add/drop period, you will be held responsible for the payment of the balance.

Veterans Benefits

Eligible veterans and/or their spouses and dependents can receive educational benefits through the Veterans Administration.  Veterans who wish to use these benefits should obtain the necessary forms and instructions from the nearest office of Veterans Affairs.  Students receiving veteran’s benefits will be reimbursed directly by the Veterans Administration under a special reimbursement policy.  For more details, please contact the College’s Financial Aid Office.

Federal Loans

Money that is loaned to the student but must be repaid.  Apply by filling out a FAFSA form.  For more details, please contact the College’s Financial Aid Office.

Satisfactory Progress

Students who receive financial aid must meet the College’s standard of satisfactory progress in order to continue receiving it.  Students who have not met the College’s academic requirements are ineligible for financial aid until the deficiency is remedied.  All courses covered by scholarship funds must be completed with at least a passing grade.

Students dropping or withdrawing from any course covered by scholarship money forfeit this financial aid and must make arrangements with Student Accounts to repay it.  The refund policy for add/drop also applies to scholarships.
