Financial Aid

Indian River State College believes that no person should be denied a college education due to a lack of funds. The College and IRSC Foundation make available to eligible students a variety of scholarships, grants, work opportunities, and loans. Although students and their parents are expected to make every effort to meet the costs of education, many students do qualify for some form 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 the IRSC website. Since Financial Aid applications take 6 to 8 weeks to process, students are encouraged to apply early.

Federal Aid recipients must meet Satisfactory Academic Progress (SAP) guidelines and must achieve a 2.0 cumulative grade point average (CGPA). Federal Financial Aid eligibility requirements state that students can only receive Financial Aid for classes that are in their degree program (exception: up to 30 credits in remedial coursework will count for Financial Aid purposes).
