Federal Supplemental Education Opportunity Grant (FSEOG) is a federal grant program designed to assist undergraduate students who have the greatest demonstrated financial need, with priority for those who a Pell Grant eligible. Because funds are limited, students who apply early have the greatest opportunity for an award.

Eligible students

All Financial Aid applicants for 2014-15 will be categorized within the following sub-groupings for prioritizing FSEOG awards. If funds are still available after all students in Group One have been awarded, then students in Group Two will be awarded next and then Group Three.

Group One – Students who:

  • Have the lowest Estimated Family Contribution (EFC) calculation; and
  • Are Pell recipients: and
  • Submit a FAFSA by the priority deadline date (3/2/14)

Group Two – Students who:

  • Have the lowest Estimated Family Contribution (EFC) calculation; and
  • Are Pell recipients; and
  • Submit a FAFSA after the priority deadline date (3/2/14) 

Group Three – Students who:

  • Have the lowest Estimated Family Contribution (EFC) calculation; and
  • Are not Pell recipients

Within each group, awards will be prioritized by the date the student’s file was processed and Pell was awarded. SWC will make FSEOG funds reasonably available (to the extent that funds remain) to all eligible students, including those whose classes start later in the academic term. Professional judgment cannot override the FSEOG selection criteria.

Maximum and Minimum Academic Year Award

Maximum yearly amount is $500 and minimum yearly amount is $250.
