Type of Aid: Grant.
Source of Funds: Federal. U.S. Congress funds. Administered by Central Connecticut State University.
Student eligibility is determined from data provided by the FAFSA completed by the student. CCSU tries to makes SEOG funding reasonably avaialble to a wide range of students, to the extent that funds are available.
The student must meet the following requirements for eligibility:
1. Be a U.S. citizen or eligible non-citizen.
2. Have financial need as determined by the FAFSA.
3. Be matriculated at CCSU which means being admitted and enrolled in a degree program.
4. Enrolled at least 6 credit hours each semester.
5. Be in good academic standing with the University and with the Financial Aid Satisfactory Academic Progress (SAP) policy
To receive a Federal Supplemental Educational Opportunity Grant (FSEOG), a student must have financial need and must meet the general eligibility requirements discussed in the other chapters of this volume. Students with the lowest EFCs who will also receive Pell grants for the award year have primary consideration for an FSEOG. If, after giving FSEOG awards to all its Pell recipients, a school has FSEOG funds remaining, it can award those funds to eligible students with the lowest EFCs who will not receive Pell grants.
Additionally, to receive an FSEOG the student must be enrolled or accepted for enrollment as an undergraduate student and must not have previously earned a bachelor’s or first professional degree.
CCSU makes FSEOG funds reasonably available (to the extent that funds remain) to all eligible students
