What is a Federal Pell Grant?

The government determines your Federal Pell Grant eligibility by:

  • Expected Family Contribution (EFC)
  • The number of credits you are enrolled in at HACC

Recent regulatory changes affect Federal Pell Grant awards. The change limits the total number of years a student may receive a Pell Grant up to the equivalent of six years of full time grants. 

What is the Federal Supplemental Educational Opportunity Grant (SEOG)?

This grant is awarded to those students with exceptional need. A student must be an undergraduate who has not completed a Bachelor's/Professional degree.

Funding for this grant is limited and awarding is subject to funds availability and on a first come, first served basis.  Students who submit a FAFSA prior to April 15 will automatically be considered for SEOG funds.
