Federal Grants

Financial Aid, top photos

Grants may be awarded if you show financial need based on the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). The grants listed here are administered by CCCC based on the guidelines set for each program by the Department of Education.

Federal Pell Grant

The Federal Pell Grant is a need-based grant, funded by the federal government for undergraduate students who have not earned a bachelor's or professional degree. The maximum award is determined every year by their EFC (Estimated Family Contribution), and their enrollment status for each semester they attend. This grant money is to be used toward education-related expenses.

Students are eligible to receive a Pell Grant for up to 12 semesters or the equivalent. If the student has exceeded the 12 semester maximum they will lose eligibility for additional Pell Grants. Equivalency is calculated by adding together the percentage of Pell eligibility that has been received each year to determine whether the total amount exceeds 600%.

Beginning with 2017-2018, students that are eligible for a Federal Pell Grant for the 2017-2018 academic year may be eligible to receive an additional Federal Pell Grant award. This Additional or Year Round Pell Grant award may be up to 150% of the students Federal Pell Grant scheduled award for the year and can be used in the Summer 2018 semester.

Please visit the Federal Student Aid website for additional information. 

FEDERAL PELL GRANT FUNDS MAY NOT BE RECEIVED FROM MORE THAN ONE INSTITUTION PER SEMESTER.

Federal Supplemental Educational Opportunity Grant (FSEOG)

The Federal Supplemental Educational Opportunity Grant (FSEOG) is for undergraduate students who have not earned a bachelor's or professional degree and who have exceptional need (students with the lowest EFC). This grant money is to be used toward education-related expenses.
