You may be eligible for a Federal Supplemental Educational Opportunity Grant, or FSEOG, to help you pay for your educational expenses at IUPUC. Unlike loans, an FSEOG does not have to be repaid.
IUPUC receives a limited amount of FSEOG funds each year. Once the annual funds have been awarded, no additional funds are received until the next year. Because IUPUC is closely affiliated with Indiana University-Purdue University Indianapolis (IUPUI), this program is administered on that campus.
- By Federal regulations, priority is given to students who receive the Federal Pell Grant.
- Eligible students must be enrolled at least half time
- Contact the Office of Financial Aid and Scholarships to inquire if this campus-level aid is being offered.
The Federal SEOG program works differently from the Federal Pell Grant Program, which provides funds to every eligible student. For the SEOG program, each participating school receives a certain amount of SEOG funds each year from the U.S. Department of Education’s office of Federal Student Aid. Once the full amount of the school’s SEOG funds has been awarded to students, no more SEOG awards can be made for that year. Therefore, students who may be eligible for the SEOG should submit their FAFSA as early as possible each year.
