The Part-Time Grant program is designed to encourage part-time undergraduates to start and complete their Associate or Baccalaureate degrees or Certificates by subsidizing part-time tuition costs. It is specifically designed to help those undergraduates who are taking at least 6 but less than 12 credit hours per term at an eligible institution. The students must meet State residency requirements, have filed a FAFSA and otherwise qualify for state aid. The Part-Time grant is a need-based award. The minimum award is $50 per term.
A student wishing to be considered for the Part-Time Grant should contact the financial aid office of the institution he or she is attending.
Beginning with the 2014-2015 academic year, the Part-Time Grant will be directly administered by the Division of Student Financial Aid (SFA). As such, students who plan to be a part-time student during the 2014-2015 academic year and wish to be considered for the grant must complete an additional application. Students can complete this application one of two ways:
Students need only apply for the Part-Time Grant once. Students may use either method described above to complete the application.
