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. The minimum award is $50 per term.

How to Apply

2013-2014 Academic Year

A student wishing to be considered for the Part-Time Grant should contact the financial aid office of the institution he or she is attending.

2014-2015 Academic Year

Beginning with the 2014-2015 academic year, the Part-Time Grant will be directly administered by the Division of Student Financial Aid (SFA). As such, students who plan to be a part-time student during the 2014-2015 academic year and wish to be considered for the grant must complete an additional application. Students can complete this application one of two ways:

  1. This application is available online at the end of the student's 2014-2015 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. 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.
  2. If a student did not complete the Part-Time Grant application directly from the 2014-2015 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.

The Part-Time Grant application and the FAFSA must be completed by July 1, 2014. Corrections to the FAFSA must be made by August 1, 2014.

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