Financial Aid

Higher Education Grant Programs

Students must complete a Higher Education Grant application with their tribal education office. Students apply at the tribe they are enrolled in if the program is available.

A Free Application For Federal Student Aid (FAFSA), Pell Grant Application, must be completed and on file before a needs analysis can be filled out by the financial aid office and submitted to the Higher Education office.

Deadines are very important!

Disbursement of Higher Ed

Tribal higher Education grants are paid out the first Friday of each month with the exception of the first month of each semester, which is paid out the third Friday due to the add/drop time frame. Tuition, books and fees will be deducted from the award of students who are not eligible for PELL, the balance of their award will be paid out monthly.
