Federal Student Financial Aid Programs
Federal student financial aid programs are administered through the U.S. Department of Education. These programs are available to all applicants who meet the basic eligibility and income, household size, and course enrollment criteria including service members. Aid from these programs can be used in addition to DVA educational benefits (such as the GI Bill). The first step is to file a FAFSA and be eligible.
The following are available at York College:
- Federal Pell Grant
- Federal Supplemental Educational Opportunity Grant (FSEOG)
- Federal Work-Study Program
- William D. Ford Federal Direct Stafford Loan Program

The U.S. Department of Education has a Aid for Military Families webpage, which is an additional resource for service members and their families to learn more about specific financial aid options.
