Federal Supplemental Education Opportunity Grant (FSEOG)

Back to Financial Aid Programs

What is a FSEOG?

The FSEOG is a federal grant program designed to supplement other sources of financial aid for students with exceptional need.  FSEOG awards are based on financial need and fund availability.  A six-unit minimum enrollment (approved units for students with approved Extension Petitions) may be required at your financial aid processing school for FSEOG eligibility.  Students must be eligible to receive Pell Grant funds in order to receive FSEOG.

What are the differences between an FSEOG and a Federal Pell Grant?

The U.S. Department of Education guarantees that each school will receive enough money to pay the federal Pell grants of its eligible students but there is no guarantee that every eligible student will receive a FSEOG award. Students at each school will be awarded SEOG funds based on the availability of funds at each school.

How much money can I get?

You can receive between $100 and $4000 a year depending on when you apply your need, and the funding level of the school you’re attending.

At Los Angeles Trade Technical College, the FSEOG award an eligible student can receive is limited to $500 per year.

How will I be paid?

FSEOG payments are paid two times a year.  The award is deposited into your Higher One Debit Card or your designated Bank Account in November for Fall semester and in April for the spring semester. The FSEOG payments are usually combined with your second Pell disbursement in each semester.
