Click on a heading or scroll down to find out more information about the following types of Financial Assistance:

Pell Grant
As mandated by the U.S. Department of Education, students without a high school diploma or high school equivalency must achieve a minimum score on the Ability to Benefit Test (ATB) in reading, math, and English/writing in order to be eligible for financial assistance from the Pell Grant program. Specific programs may require higher placement scores for admission.   

The Pell Grant Program is a federal assistance program designed to provide financial assistance to students attending postsecondary educational institutions.  Pell Grants are intended to be the "floor" of a financial assistance package and may be combined with other forms of assistance in order to meet the full costs of education.  The amount of the student's Pell Grant is determined on the basis of her/his financial resources.  It is a grant, not a loan.  Attendance and satisfactory progress of the student are monitored.  Students must meet obligations to maintain the grant award.  WIA recipients must apply for a Pell Grant.  Applications to apply for a Pell Grant are available online at www.fafsa.ed.gov.

Workforce Investment Act (WIA)
Workforce Investment Act is a federal assistance program that assists students with costs of training.  Costs of tuition, registration fees, books, tools, and uniforms may be covered through WIA.  Eligible participants may also be reimbursed for transportation costs.  Eligibility is determined by the local WIA personnel and is based on financial resources.  The Financial Aid Officer works with the WIA offices in certifying students for WIA benefits.  A student must complete an application with local WIA offices.  The Student Affairs Office can provide details.

Stategies to Empower People (STEP)
Strategies to Empower People is a federal aid program that assists parent participants by providing funds for tuition, books, childcare, and transportation.  Participants must have at least one child 18 years of age or younger and must meet financial eligibility requirements. The Financial Aid Officer can provide more details.

Social Security
Dependent children of disabled or deceased workers covered by Social Security may be eligible to receive benefits while attending school as full-time students.  Students should contact the local Social Security Office for determination of eligibility. 

Vocational Rehabilitation
Persons with physical or mental disabilities may qualify for financial assistance through Vocational Rehabilitation.  The Office of Student Affairs refers individuals to the Vocational Rehabilitation Services office to apply.

Student Tuition Assistance and Revenue Trust (START)

The Student Tuition Assistance and Revenue Trust Program, commonly referred to as the “START Saving Program,” is an innovative college savings plan designed to help families contend with the growing costs of educating their children after high school.

Board of Regents Early Start
Eligible secondary students may receive assistance through the Board of Regents to assist with the cost of tuition, fees, books, and other related costs.  Information on the initiative is available through the Student Affairs Office or the high school guidance office.

TOPS
The Tuition Opportunity Program for Students (TOPS) Tech Award was created to promote a skilled workforce in Louisiana by assisting Louisiana high school graduates who choose to pursue skill or occupational training in a Louisiana public postsecondary school that offers a vocational or technical education certificate or diploma program or a nonacademic undergraduate degree.  Students must have a composite score of 17 on the ACT. The award is for the cost of tuition for up to two years at the Louisiana public postsecondary school attended.  Complete eligibility requirements are available in the Student Affairs Office. For more detailed information concerning the TOPS program, please visit their official website at http://www.osfa.state.la.us/.

LA National Guard
The Louisiana Army National Guard 100% Tuition Exemption Program waives the cost of tuition only for Louisiana Army and Air National Guard soldiers attending a Louisiana State college, university, or community college program that is funded by the Louisiana Board of Higher Education. Any actively participating soldier of the Louisiana Army National Guard is entitled to a100% tuition only in any state-funded college program.
