Federal Grants. Federal grants are awarded based on the expected family contribution, determined by the FAFSA. Grants include the Pell Grant, Supplemental Educational Opportunity Grant (SEOG), and the Federal Teacher Education Assistance for College and Higher Education (TEACH) Grant program.

Kentucky Grants. Kentucky residents may be eligible for the College Access Program and/or the Kentucky Tuition Grant. Filing a FAFSA will automatically send information to the Commonwealth for application. Deadlines are determined by the Commonwealth.

Outside Scholarships. As some students receive scholarships from outside organizations, the Department of Education requires that these be considered as part of the financial assistance awards. If need has been met, the college is required to reduce any need-based portion of the overall award, beginning with loans and work-study.
