This is need-based money from the state government awarded to Utah residents. It generally does not need to be repaid. It is awarded on a first-come, first-served basis, with discretionary amounts set aside for consideration on a case-by-case basis. Funds are very limited. It does not need to be repaid unless you do not complete the requirements for the semester. Repayment requirements will be determined by the Financial Aid Office. The HESSP grant generally requires half-time enrollment (six credits) but special consideration may be given on a case-by-case basis. Eligibility is determined by the US Department of Education by filling out the FAFSA and by your Financial Aid Counselor.
