Minnesoata Student Finacial Aid Options:

  • Minnesota State Grant
    State Grants help students from low- and moderate-income families pay for educational expenses at eligible Minnesota colleges or universities. In Fiscal Year 2015, approximately:
  • 36 percent of State Grant recipients have family incomes below $20,000,
  • 37 percent have incomes between $20,000 and $50,000, and
  • 27 percent have incomes over $50,000.There is no charge for applying to the Minnesota State Grant Program. Students can apply for a State Grant by completing the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). This form is used to determine the student’s and family’s expected financial contribution, and is the same form used to apply for the Federal Pell Grant and other types of aid from institutions. To receive a State Grant for a term, the FAFSA must be submitted to the federal processing center within 30 days of the school’s term start date. 
  • Are graduates of a secondary school or its equivalent or are at least 17 years of age.
  • Will be enrolled as undergraduates for at least three credits at one of more than 130 eligible schools in Minnesota.Students who are in default on a student loan or who are more than 30 days behind on child support owed to a public agency are NOT eligible, unless they have established payment plans with the appropriate agency and made a series of on-time monthly payments.

Students may receive State Grants for four consecutive full-time quarters or three consecutive semesters during the course of a single fiscal year.

State Grants are limited to:

  • Students who have not yet attended eight full-time semesters of postsecondary education or the equivalent.
  • Students who have withdrawn for active military service or for a major medical illness while under the care of a physician after December 31, 2002 are given an extra term of eligibility.
  • Students who have NOT received a baccalaureate degree.
  • Students must reapply each year to be considered for a grant. A State Grant can be renewed for up to six full-time semesters or nine quarters (or their equivalent). However, the student must make satisfactory progress and demonstrate financial need as defined in state law.

The maximum award for 2016-2017 ranges from about $7,343 at a public two-year college to $11,753 at a private four-year college. The average award is approximately $1,857. The minimum award is $100 per year. Awards are based on the difference between what students and their families are expected to contribute to pay for the education and the actual price of attending a particular college or university.

However, all applicants are required to contribute at least 50 percent of their price of attendance out of savings, earnings, loans or other assistance from school or private sources. For dependent students, the remaining 50 percent of the price of attendance is met by a contribution from the parents as determined by the federal need analysis (FAFSA)and by the combination of Federal Pell Grant and State Grant awards. For independent students, the remaining 50 percent of the price of attendance is met by a contribution from student’s income and assets (as determined by the federal need analysis) and by the combination of Pell and State awards.
