Creighton University uses the Free Application for Federal Student Aid to determine eligibility for all grants. Each year a new application must be filed to qualify for grants for the following academic year. A grant does not have to be repaid.
Federal Pell Grant
This Federal program provides grants to those students who meet the eligibility criteria established by the U.S. Congress. The exact amount of a Pell Grant will depend on your eligibility, the money appropriated by Congress to fund the program in any given year and your enrollment status.
Federal Supplemental Educational Opportunity Grant (FSEOG)
The FSEOG is awarded to undergraduate students demonstrating exceptional financial need. These grants vary annually depending upon the amount allocated by the government and the student’s need. Pell grant recipients receive first priority.
Nebraska Opportunity Grant Program
Funding from the federal government and the State of Nebraska provides Nebraska residents with support through this program. The Financial Aid Office matches applicants to the criteria set forth by the Nebraska Coordinating Commission for Postsecondary Education and selects eligible recipients. Funding is limited and variable each year.
Creighton University Grants
Creighton awards grants that are based on documented financial need. The amount of the grant will vary depending upon your need. Full-time enrollment status is required.
Tuition Remission Benefit
Tuition remission is available to children of University employees who meet eligibility requirements based on specific program criteria. Receipt of tuition remission will preclude a student from receiving the monetary value of any Creighton University scholarship, and/or institutionally funded grant. Eligible employees must submit a Tuition Remission Application available from Human Resources. Specific eligibility criteria can be secured from the Human Resources Office.
