Pennsylvania State Grants – This is a grant awarded to undergraduates who are Pennsylvania residents with financial need as determined by the Pennsylvania Higher Education Assistance Agency (PHEAA). Students can be enrolled full-time or part-time (at least six credits). Students must complete at least 50% of their coursework in the classroom. Students are not eligible for PA State Grants if more than 50% of their coursework is on-line. PHEAA randomly selects applications for income validation and will email the student using the email address provided on the FAFSA to request the required documentation. The student must mail the additional documentation directly to the PHEAA State Grant Division in Harrisburg, PA. Failure to submit this additional documentation will delay state grant awards.
First-time recipients: Students must also complete the PA State Grant form which contains additional information required by PHEAA. Students will receive an email from PHEAA and must complete this form on-line at www.pheaa.org. Failure to complete this additional information will delay state grant awards.
Deadline: May 1
Other State Grants – Other states (Connecticut, District of Columbia, Maine, Maryland, Massachusetts, Ohio, Rhode Island, Vermont and West Virginia) have grants that can be transferred to La Roche College. Contact your high school guidance counselor or your state’s higher education assistance agency for more information.
Deadline: Varies with each state
