Federal Supplemental Education Opportunity Grant (FSEOG)

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 are Pell Grant eligible. Because funds are limited, students who apply early have the greatest opportunity for an award.

Eligible Students

All Financial Aid applicants will be categorized within the following sub-groupings for prioritizing FSEOG awards. If funds are still available after all student in Group One have been awarded, then students in Group Two will be awarded next, and then Group Three.  All FSEOG recipients must be enrolled at least 6 units per term to be eligible.  


Within each group, awards will be prioritized by the date the student’s FAFSA was completed. 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 & Minimum Academic Year Award

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