Apply for Financial Aid

Financial AidIndian River State College believes that no person should be denied a college education due to a lack of funds.

The College and the IRSC Foundation make available to eligible students a variety of scholarships, grants, work opportunities, and loans. Applying for these opportunities is strongly encouraged as many students do qualify for some type of scholarship or financial aid.

Federal and State Financial Aid programs are offered to eligible students at IRSC. These include:

  • Federal Pell Grant
  • Federal Supplemental Educational Opportunity Grant (FSEOG)
  • Florida Student Assistance Grant (FSAG)
  • Florida Bright Futures Scholarship Program
  • Federal TEACH Grant
  • Federal Work Study Program (FWSP)
  • Federal Direct Student Loans

Applications and information on these programs are available to students through their high school guidance counselor or at www.irsc.edu. Since financial aid applications may take 6 weeks to process, students are encouraged to apply early.

  • Federal Aid recipients must meet Satisfactory Academic Progress (SAP) guidelines (See Satisfactory Academic Progress for Financial Aid).
  • Federal Financial Aid eligibility requirements will only allow payments for classes that are a part of the student's program of study. Up to 30 credits of developmental education coursework will count for financial aid purposes.
