Stevenson University is responsible for administering the Federal Campus-Based Programs, i.e., Federal Supplemental Educational Opportunity Grant (FSEOG), Federal Work-Study, and Federal Perkins Loan; and institutional need-based funds. Awards are made reasonably available to all eligible students who meet the program requirements. Individual award packages consider demonstrated need, program eligibility, and the availability of funds for the award period. In the event that the number of eligible students exceeds the availability of funds, the University will give preference to those students demonstrating the greatest financial need. The determination of greatest financial need will consider grant and scholarship aid from all public and private sources.
For maximum consideration of aid, students are encouraged to apply for financial aid each year by completing the FAFSA between January 1 and February 15.
