The Part-Time Grant program is designed to encourage part-time undergraduates to start and complete their Associate or Baccalaureate degrees or Certificates by subsidizing part-time tuition costs. It is specifically designed to help those undergraduates who are taking at least 6 but less than 12 credit hours per term at an eligible institution. The students must meet State residency requirements, have filed a FAFSA and otherwise qualify for state aid. The Part-Time grant is a need-based award.

How to Apply

The Part-Time Grant is directly administered by the Commission. Students who are attending part-time (greater than 6 credit hours but less than 12 credit hours) must complete the Part Time Grant Application:
  1. This application is available online at the end of the student's FAFSA submission. After the completion of the FAFSA, students will be eligible to transfer FAFSA information to the state's application. This feature is only available once on the student's confirmation page after submitting the FAFSA.
  2. If a student does not complete the Part-Time Grant application at this time, he or she will be able to complete the application at a later date by clicking HERE to access the state's Part-Time Grant application.

2014-2015 Academic Year

The Part-Time Grant application for the 2014-2015 school year and the FAFSA must have been completed by July 1, 2014 and corrections made by August 1, 2014 to receive priority funding. Applications filed after that time may not receive aid for the 2014-2015 academic year.

Students need only apply for the Part-Time Grant once. Students may use either method described above to complete the application.

If a student did not complete the Part-Time Grant application directly after filing the FAFSA, he or she can link directly to the application once the state has received the student's FAFSA data from the federal processor. It can take 5 to 7 days for the federal processor to provide FAFSA data to the state. Students can click HERE to access the state's Part-Time Grant application.
