Financial Aid and Scholarships
Students interested in applying for financial aid for the current academic year should complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) at http://www.fafsa.gov. If seeking an Associate of Arts degree, include the Southeast School Code: 002501 and the Three Rivers School Code: 004713. Missouri’s early application deadline is April 1. The FAFSA will still be accepted after this date and qualifying students will be considered for Federal Pell Grant and Federal Direct Student Loans.
Financial aid awards are offered to admitted students. An e-mail is sent to the student’s University-assigned e-mail account as notification that the award package is ready for review. Award notifications are online through the student portal.
Southeast and Three Rivers merit scholarships may not be used at the CGPHE.
Missouri A+ Financial Incentive
High school graduates who meet the Missouri A+ Schools Program guidelines and enroll full-time at the CGPHE as an Associate of Arts degree-seeking student will be considered for the A+ Financial Incentive.
A+ aid for all Associate of Applied Science and Associate of Science (AS) degrees will be processed by Mineral Area College. A+ eligible students who intend to pursue an AAS or AS should contact Beth Brunkhorst or Jeanna Lohman at the Cape Girardeau Career and Technology Center by calling (573) 334-0826.
