The PHEAA State Grant is for Pennsylvania residents who are enrolled full-time (12 or more credits) or part-time (minimum of 6 credits) in an undergraduate program (matriculating) and have demonstrated financial need. Current students must file their FAFSA by May 1 to be considered for a state grant. Students that reside outside of Pennsylvania should check with their respective State Boards of Education to see if there are any grant programs available. More info
Pennsylvania residents who are enrolled in an online program taking 50% or more of their classes within an online format may be eligible for the state grant through the PA State Grant Distance Education Pilot Program (SGDEPP). Students will be nominated by the Financial Aid Office upon registration.
If a student received the PA State Grant at a prior institution; a transcript will be required to measure satisfactory academic progress in order to award the PA State Grant.
