Additional Student Support Incentive Grant (SSIG)

Additional Student Support Incentive Grant (SSIG) Benefits:  The SSIG for full Pell recipients will be equal to $900 per term for full-time attendance in the fall and spring terms and $450 for half-time attendance in the summer term.  Awards will be reduced for students who withdraw or stop attending through the 60% point of the semester similar to the VGAP and COMA programs.  The SSIG will be disbursed in two installments each semester, with the first one occurring after the semester census date and the second one delayed until the end of the term in order to confirm the student did not withdraw or stop attending.  

SSIG Requirements:
  1. Full-time (12 or more credit hours in the fall and spring semesters and 6 credit hours in the summer) and must receive a full Federal Pell Grant with an EFC equal to 0
  2. Students must passed/earned 30 or more credit hours in order to continue qualifying for the SSIG
  3. Cannot have a BA degree

This additional assistance (SSIG) is intended to reduce the number of part-time hours a student has to work so that he or she can spend more time studying.
