How do I apply?

Apply for FSEOG by completing a FAFSA.

How much FSEOG can I receive?

How much you receive depends on your financial need, the amount of the money budgeted to the program, and the other financial aid you have been awarded.

Top


 

How will I know if I have been awarded FSEOG?

When you receive your award letter from the college, it will indicate whether or not you have been awarded FSEOG. You may also check your "view financial aid" located in your CUNYfirst account, under Self Service -> Student Center.

How many credits do I have to take to be eligible?

You must register for and maintain enrollment status of half-time (6 credits or equated credits) or greater to be eligible for FSEOG. If, for any reason, your course load falls below half-time, payments of your award will be stopped.

What is the difference between FSEOG and Pell?

For the Pe​ll program, the federal government guarantees that the college will receive enough money to pay Pell to its eligible students. For the FSEOG program, each school receives a fixed amount of money to make FSEOG awards. Once this money is awarded, there is no more for that academic year. It is important that you file your applications early in the academic year so that you get maximum consideration for limited FSEOG funds.
