Institutional Grants

South University provides a need-based Institutional Grant to students who demonstrate financial need and are attending as full-time undergraduate students. Our Institutional Grant may help reduce your college tuition costs.
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.
    1. The Students’ EFC will determine the Maximum Grant Amount
  2. Is enrolled in an undergraduate program of study.
  3. Maintains Satisfactory Academic Progress as defined in the school catalog and be in good academic standing.
  4. Attends a minimum of 10 credit hours per quarter.
  5. Maintains full-time enrollment status past the midpoint of the quarter

Speak with an admissions representative to discuss full eligibility requirements.
The South University Institutional Grant can only be used to cover direct costs of the student’s education, does not carry a cash value, and cannot be used to issue a stipend. 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.
