The maximum grant a student can receive during a school year is $3,125 with a maximum of $1,041.67 per semester and summer session. The amount of a grant depends on financial need and the number of credits taken (status). Students cannot receive a grant at two different schools during the same school term.

Computation of grant $3,125/3 * Need * Status

For a full time student with maximum need:

For a student with a code 3 need taking 9 credits

$3,125 / 3 * 50% * 75% = $390.63
