Tuition Remission Grants are awarded based on financial need. Day and evening students must be registered for at least 9 credits to be considered for a Tuition Remission Grant. Day students are awarded as full-time (12 or more credits) students. If a day student is registered for less than 12 and at least nine credits, the grant will be adjusted. To maintain eligibility, students must reapply every year. The amount awarded depends on the availability of funds and demonstrated financial need (total cost of education minus expected family contribution). All Tuition Remissions are awarded based on the information reported on the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). Any changes to this information or changes in enrollment must be reported to the Student Finance Office.
Opportunity Grants are intended to pay up to full tuition and may include fees and are based on financial need. Students must be in the Day Division and in order to maintain eligibility. In addition, the grant may also include an additional stipend to be used for the purchase of books and to help cover living expenses. This additional amount may vary according to financial need and the availability of funds. All Opportunity Grant awards are based on the information reported on the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). Any changes to information or changes in enrollment or residency status must be reported immediately to the Student Finance Office. Approximately 10 Opportunity Grants are awarded to each incoming class.
Previous recipients of an Opportunity Grant who meet the annual April deadline for grants will automatically be reconsidered for renewal. The renewal of an Opportunity Grant is contingent upon the level of funding received from the State, the student's level of need remaining the same, and the student meeting the annual application deadlines as set forth by the Student Finance Office.
