Grants

Most grant awards are based solely on financial need and, unlike loans, do not have to be repaid. All grants require students to pass the Satisfactory Academic Progress (SAP) guidelines at the end of each semester.

Federal Pell Grant: Pell Grants are awarded only to undergraduate students based on financial need and serve as the foundation of federal student aid. The amount you are eligible to receive depends on:

    • Expected Family Contribution (EFC) as calculated in your FAFSA
    • Cost of attendance
    • Full-time or part-time status
    • Whether you attend for a full academic year or less

Federal Supplemental Educational Opportunity Grant (SEOG): If you've qualified for a Pell Grant, you may also qualify for an SEOG, which is awarded to undergraduate students with exceptional financial need. Unlike Pell Grants, SEOG awards vary based on the other aid you receive and the availability of funds at SUNY Delhi. Filing early will help you be considered for this funding. Your eligibility for SEOG is also based on your FAFSA.

Tuition Assistance Program (TAP):  Eligible NYS Residents may be eligible for tuition assistance from the Higher Education Service Corporation.  Applicants must be enrolled full-time (12+ credits) per semester. 

State University Supplemental Tuition Award (SUSTA): This is a campus-based grant based on TAP eligibility and financial need. To receive SUSTA, you must complete both the TAP application and FAFSA.

Educational Opportunity Program (EOP) Grant: SUNY Delhi offers the Educational Opportunity Program for students who have the ability and talent to succeed in college but have had limited academic and financial opportunity. For more information, visit the EOP website.

Aid for Part-Time Study (APTS): APTS is a New York State grant for eligible part-time undergraduate students enrolled between 3 to 11 hours per semester. Applicants must complete a FAFSA and TAP application along with the downloadable APTS application located on our forms page.
