SEOG is similar to the Federal Pell Grant in that it does not have to be repaid except in cases involving a student’s complete withdrawal. SEOG funds are extremely limited and are distributed to the students with the most need based on the student’s EFC number. A student must be eligible for a Federal Pell Grant in order to be considered for a Federal Supplemental Educational Opportunity Grant. There is no separate application for these funds; all students who complete the FAFSA by the priority deadline are considered and awarded SEOG if eligible.
A transient student is a student who attends another college and will be in attendance at Jefferson State one semester and then return to their home institution. Transient students are not eligible to receive financial aid at Jefferson State.
