What are the eligibility requirements?

To receive FSEOG, you must meet the eligibility requirements for federal student aid described in the section on the Pell grant.

Top


How do I apply?

Apply for FSEOG by completing a FAFSA.

Top


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. Beginning in the summer of the award year, you may also check your award status on the CUNY Portal, under "CUNY Center for Admissions and Financial Aid” or “eFAP.”

Top


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 Pell 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.
