DETERMINING ELIGIBILITY

With the exception of the scholarship program and the payout plan, all
Student financial services programs are funded by federal or state governmental
agencies and administered according to the laws and guidelines of each
program. In general, the eligibility requirements listed below are the
same for all programs. A student must:

  • Be an U.S. citizen or eligible non-citizen.
  • Be registered with the Selective Service if you are at least 18 years old and male.
  • Be a high school graduate or have a GED certificate.
  • Show documented financial need.
  • Be enrolled in an eligible program offered by Frank Phillips College.
  • Be working toward a degree or certificate.
  • Be maintaining satisfactory progress and good standing in your course of study.
  • Be enrolled or plan to enroll in at least three semester-credit hours for Federal Pell Grants and at least six semester-credit hours for loan programs.
  • Do not be in default on a federal student loan.

DETERMINING FINANCIAL NEED

Cost of Attendance 
When calculating the cost of an education, we take into account several factors, such as:

Tuition & Fees
Books & Supplies
Transportation
Room & Board
Miscellaneous Expenses 

Expected Family Contribution 
A standard formula created by the Federal Government determines the amount
of money a family may reasonably be expected to contribute toward an
individual’s education. Income, assets, benefits, number of dependents
and number of family members in college are all considered in the
calculation. 

Financial Need 
A student’s financial need is determined by subtracting the Expected
Family Contribution from the Cost of Attendance. Federal and State
financial assistance is limited to this amount by law. All scholarships,
grants, loans and work study are considered in meeting the student’s
need.
