South Carolina Need Based Grants Program

The S.C. Higher Education Tuition Grants Commission administers the Need-based Grant Program for independent colleges and universities as a part of the Tuition Grants Program. A student may receive up to $2,500 annually if enrolled full-time at a public institution and up to $1,250 annually if enrolled part-time at a public institution. Half of the grant is awarded in the fall semester and half is awarded in the spring semester, assuming continued eligibility. The college at which the student is enrolled determines the exact amount, less any other gift aid received. The grant must be applied directly towards the cost-of-attendance at the college for a maximum of eight full-time equivalent terms. Students must be enrolled in their first one-year program, first associate’s degree, first two-year program leading to a baccalaureate degree, first baccalaureate degree, or first professional degree.
