Grant eligibility is determined by information from the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA).
Per Federal Regulations, federal aid (Pell, Work Study & Student Loans) will only pay for courses required for the degree you are seeking with Arkansas State University-Beebe.
Federal Pell Grants
What is a Federal Pell Grant?
A Federal Pell Grant is awarded to help undergraduate students pay for their education after high school. For the purposes of the Federal Pell Grant Program, an undergraduate is one who has not earned a bachelor's or professional degree. These grants provide a "foundation" of financial aid for many students to which aid from other federal sources may be added. Unlike loans, grants do not have to be repaid unless a student withdraws or has all failing grades.
How much can I receive from a Federal Pell Grant?
Award amounts can change yearly. The maximum Federal Pell Grant awarded for the 2021-22 award year is $6,495.00. The amount awarded depends upon your Expected Family Contribution (EFC), the cost of education, enrollment status, and whether or not attendance is for a full academic year or less. The courses must apply to your degree to count toward eligibility and enrollment, which determines the amount of Pell Grant and other federal aid.
Can I receive a Federal Pell Grant if I am enrolled less than half-time?
Yes, less than half-time students can receive aid if they are otherwise eligible. The Pell Grant will be prorated according to the federal guidelines and the payment chart for the year. Less than half-time students will not receive as much aid as they would if they were enrolled full-time. The college must disburse Pell Grant funds in accordance with the student's enrollment status and cannot refuse to award a student simply because he/she is enrolled less than half-time.
Federal Supplemental Educational Opportunity Grant (FSEOG)
What is a FSEOG?
The FSEOG Program is a federal need-based grant to assist undergraduate students with their college educational expenses. Priority is given to those students with an exceptional financial need and those who are eligible to receive a Federal Pell Grant.
How much can I get from a FSEOG at ASU-Beebe?
Federal SEOG is first awarded to those students whose FAFSA application was received prior the priority deadline. Beginning with the 2021-22 award year, the date is set for April 1. The maximum award amount is based on a student's enrollment each academic year. Students enrolled full-time will be awarded $350 per semester, $225 for three-quarter time per semester, and $150 for half-time students per semester.
Pell Recalculation Date for ASU-Beebe is the 11th Day of the semester.
