Florida Student Assistance Grant (FSAG)

The Florida Student Assistance Grant (FSAG) Program is a need-based grant program available to degree-seeking, resident, undergraduate students who demonstrate financial need and are enrolled in participating postsecondary institutions. At SFSC an eligible student may be awarded up to $1,000 per term. 

Eligibility Requirements

To be eligible for this grant, the student must meet these requirements each academic year:

  • Complete a FAFSA.
  • Your FAFSA should be processed by SFSC's Priority Deadline Date of April 15. These funds are limited; therefore, there is no guarantee you will receive these funds. Apply early! 
  • Be a U.S. Citizen or an eligible non-citizen.
  • Must have been a Florida resident for at least one year.
  • Be a degree-seeking student (A.A.S., A.A., A.S., or bachelor's degree program).  
  • Be enrolled in at least 6 credit hours per term.
  • Have a Pell-eligible EFC (Expected Family Contribution), as determined by the FAFSA.
  • Have not previously received a bachelor's degree.
  • Must not owe a repayment or be in default under any state or federal grant or loan program.
  • Must be meeting Satisfactory Academic Progress at SFSC.

Renewal Requirements

FSAG awards have specific completion renewal requirements that are different from the minimum Satisfactory Academic Progress requirements.

  • Full-time enrolled (24 credit hours) students must complete 24 credit hours.
  • Three-quarter time enrolled (18 credit hours) students must complete 18 credit hours.
  • Half-time enrolled (12 credit hours) students must complete 12 credit hours.
  • All students receiving FSAG must have a minimum cumulative GPA of 2.0.
  • More information on the Florida Student Assistance Grant.

Financial Assistance Services will verify your eligibility based on the information submitted on your FAFSA.
