Financial Aid

Financial Aid can assist students who are unable to meet the costs of attending college. Financial Aid can come in the forms of federal aid, state aid, grants, scholarships, loans, and payment plans. The first step to finding financial aid is to apply using the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) to determine eligibility for need-based aid. San Diego Global Knowledge makes every effort to assist students in achieving their educational goals.

Pell Grant Formula Calculation

There are two types of Pell formulas that San Diego Global Knowledge University uses for its Pell Grant recipients.

The Full Stack Development Immersive program uses a Pell Formula 4: Clock-Hour and Non-Term Credit Hour Program

To use Pell formula 4, the program must meet one of two sets of the requirements:

  1. Pell Grants must be paid in installments over the course of the academic year or program of study to help meet the student’s cost in each payment period. The payment period determines when Pell funds are disbursed and the exact amount to be disbursed.
  2. In non-term programs, the student’s Pell award is not reduced for parttime enrollment unless the student is enrolled less than half-time in which case the student’s COA must be adjusted. However, if the program is less than an academic year (in either credit units or weeks of instructional time), students enrolled in that program will not receive a full Scheduled Award.

The Bachelor of Science in Global Management uses Pell Formula 1: Credit-Hour Term-Based Programs

To use Pell formula 1, the program meets one of two sets of requirements:

  1.  The full-time enrollment for each term in the award year has at least 12 credit units and a minimum of 30 weeks of instructional time and is comprised of two semesters, and
  2. The student must be defined as full-time enrollment (e.g., 12 credit units) and must measure progress in credit-hours.
