Campus-Based Financial Aid

Towson University receives a limited amount of money each year for the campus-based aid programs. The Financial Aid Office targets all campus-based funds toward eligible students with the highest levels of financial need who completed the FAFSA application process by TU’s Priority Deadline. Once all available funds are exhausted on the students with the highest financial need, students with lower levels of need will not receive these awards.

Federal Supplemental Educational Opportunity Grant (SEOG)

Towson University receives a limited amount of SEOG funds and may offer these grants to full-time first-time bachelor’s degree candidates with exceptionally high financial need. Awards typically go to students with EFCs of $0.

Institutional Grant

Towson University may offer the Institutional Grant to full-time first-time bachelor’s degree candidates with high financial need.

Federal Work Study

This need-based federal aid program allows eligible students to work and earn money for educational expenses. Since the earned funds are paid to students through bi-weekly paychecks, these funds cannot be applied toward tuition and fees or other charges that are due at the beginning of the term.

Federal Work Study jobs are available on-campus in academic and administrative departments as well as at local elementary or middle schools in approved community service programs designed to help children develop reading and math skills.
