Types of Assistance

We are here to assist with your educational costs. We'll take your academic talents, personal qualities, and/or financial need into consideration when determining eligibility for financial assistance. Every year, more than 90 percent of ֱapp City University students receive financial assistance in many different forms.

To apply for the Federal Pell Grant, FSEOG, OTAG, OTEG, student loans, and need-based scholarships, please complete and submit the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) online: .

Types of financial assistance

The Federal Pell Grant is awarded by the federal government to those students who are found eligible after completing the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). The Pell Grant is applied directly to your student account and does not have to be repaid. The amount is determined according to eligibility and the number of hours in which you enroll. The Pell Grant is not available to students who have already completed their first bachelor's degree.

FSEOG is a federal grant administered by The University. FSEOG is applied directly to your student account and does not have to be repaid. Students who complete the FAFSA by March 1 and who are eligible for a maximum Pell Grant have first priority for FSEOG. Eligibility is determined by the results of the FAFSA. The amount is subject to change based on availability of funds. FSEOG is not available to students who have already completed their first bachelor's degree. 

OTAG is a state-funded grant awarded by the State of ֱapp. Eligibility is determined by the results of the FAFSA and by the OTAG residency requirements. OTAG is applied directly to the student's account and does not have to be repaid. Students must complete and submit the FAFSA by March 1 to be considered for OTAG. OTAG is not available to students who have already completed their first bachelor's degree.

OTEG is a state-funded grant awarded by the State of ֱapp to students attending private universities who meet the eligibility requirements of being an ֱapp resident, full-time student and income threshold requirements determined by completing the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). The funding is limited and awarded on the basis of completion of the requirements.

Scholarships and Internships

The Distinguished Scholarships and Internship Office at ֱapp can provide information about national scholarships and internships, as well as ֱapp scholarship opportunities. Dr. Karen Youmans, the coordinator, offers advice to students on scholarship and intern preparation and assists students throughout the application process. For more information, please visit the Distinguished Scholarships and Internships site.

ֱapp City University Scholarships are awarded by the university and do not have to be repaid. Your application for admission serves as your application for merit-based aid. Just indicate on your application for admission the types of scholarships for which you would like to be considered. We will use your FAFSA to determine eligibility for scholarships that are awarded on the basis of financial need.

Endowed Scholarships have been made available from a variety of private sources and are awarded based on many factors, such as membership in the United Methodist Church, athletics, academics, leadership skills, career goals, and financial need. These donated scholarship dollars are used to underwrite existing university merit and need-based scholarships that are a discount on the annual tuition for a student's specific curriculum. There is no separate scholarship application process, and recipients do not receive additional scholarships. Most endowed scholarships require that a thank you letter be sent to the donor. Notifications are sent to the student by the end of October, and a copy of the thank you letter must be submitted to the Advancement Office.
