High School Grants


South University will now offer new Local High School Grants for all eligible high school, GED and Home School graduates to receive help with tuition and fees to make higher education more accessible.

At South University, our goal is to be a good local partner and to support our school systems and students on the pathway to graduation.

To qualify for the Local High School Grants, you must be a graduate of an eligible county high school, GED or Home Schooling as well as a first-time college student (no prior post-high school college enrollment or credits; high school dual-enrollment students are eligible), and have a cumulative GPA of 2.0 at high school graduation. To continue receiving the grant after your first term, you must maintain eligibility.*

Discover the extensive program offerings, along with flexible learning options including day, evening, and online courses. Learn and grow in a welcoming environment with supportive faculty and staff who provide one-on-one attention and mentorship from enrollment through graduation. Our goal is to help you to build practical, in-demand skills for pursuing and growing your career.

Eligibility for the Institutional Grant is determined on these student qualification factors including:

  1. Have an official Expected Family Contribution (EFC), as determined by the U.S. Department of Education, based on completion of the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) for the applicable award year.

Students must have a direct cost financial need to receive the funds. Loan and other aid amounts will not be reduced to accommodate the fully approved need-based award. Students can work with their Financial Aid Office to discuss eligibility.
