Students are automatically considered for a federal SEOG grant when they file the FAFSA application and complete their file. The Federal SEOG is also a program that does not need to be repaid. The student must meet the minimum eligibility requirements of a ‘0000’ Expected Family Contribution. Funds are awarded on a first come first served basis based on file completion date, until available funds are exhausted.

Currently College of Alameda awards a maximum of $600/year, and only students who are enrolled at least 6 units or more are actually eligible to receive the funds. This program is designed for students showing exceptional need and Pell Grant eligibility.

More information on the SEOG Grant can be found on Financial Aid TV.
