TEXAS EDUCATIONAL OPPORTUNITY GRANT PROGRAM (TEOG)

    The purpose of the program is to provide grant aid to students with
    financial need.  Use is limited to public two-year community colleges,
    public technical colleges or public state colleges in Texas.  

    Applicants must:
     - Be classified by the institution as a Texas resident
     - Show financial need
     - Register for the Selective Service, unless exempt
     - Not be concurrently receiving a renewal TEXAS Grant; and
     - Be enrolled at least half time and awarded in the first 30 hours 
       (or its equivalent) of an associate's degree or certificate
       program (excluding credits for dual enrollment or by examination)
     - Not have been convicted of a felony or a crime involving a 
        controlled substance

    Eligible students may receive up to $5,876 in TEOG funds for the 
    2019-2020 academic year.  Students who continue in college and who meet 
    program academic standards can receive awards for up to 75 semester 
    credit hours, for four years, or until they receive an associate's 
    degree, whichever comes first.  Eligibility ends once 75 semester 
    credit hours have been attempted unless the student is granted a 
    hardship extension.

    The academic requirements for continuing in the program are listed on 
    the website.  Complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid 
    (FAFSA).  Visit www.collegeforalltexans.com for more information.
