Supplemental Educational Opportunity Grant (SEOG)
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 Merritt College 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.
