Financial Aid

What Financial Aid is available?

Federal and state student aid is available for students enrolled in eligible programs at approved schools.
Summit Academy OIC participates in five financial aid programs:

  • The Federal Pell Grant Program
  • Federal Supplemental Educational Opportunity Grant (FSEOG)
  • The Minnesota State Grant Program
  • The Federal Work-Study Program
  • The Minnesota State Work-Study Program

Both federal and state grants are financial aid that does not have to be repaid. The grant amounts are based on need, cost of attendance and enrollment status.
