|The College Scholarship Assistance Program (CSAP) is a statewide need-based undergraduate grant program established in 1973 to assist students with extreme financial need in Virginia's public and participating private colleges and universities.|
|To apply for assistance, the student must: 1.From a high school or post-secondary institution, obtain and complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA), or other federally approved application for need-based aid; 2.Meet the FAFSA application deadline established by the participating institution which the student plans to attend; 3.Ensure that information provided on the application is complete and accurate. A student's failure to resolve any pending problems with the processing of an application may preclude the student from being considered for assistance in this program; and 4.If attending a private institution, file a Tuition Assistance Grant Program application or complete a domiciliary status form. Eligibility A completed application for need-based aid must be filed with a participating institution. To be considered for a CSAP award, the student must: 1.Be admitted into a Virginia public two or four year college or university, or a participating Virginia private non-profit four year college or university; 2.Be enrolled at least half-time in an approved degree, certificate, or diploma program; 3.Be a citizen or eligible non-citizen of the U.S.; 4.Be a domiciliary resident of Virginia as defined by the Code of Virginia §23-7.4; 5.Not have received assistance for more than the normal length of time required to complete the particular undergraduate degree program in which the student is enrolled; 6.Meet the satisfactory progress standards of the institution for federal student aid programs; 7.Have a computed Expected Family Contribution that is less than one-half of the total cost of attendance; 8.Meet all federal requirements set forth in federal laws and regulations which apply to Title IV Programs (1965 Higher Education Act, as amended; see below); and 9.Not be enrolled in a program leading to a second associate or bachelor degree. 10.Must have a high school diploma or its recognized equivalent, or be above the age of compulsory school attendance in the Commonwealth of Virginia and have the ability to benefit from the education or training offered by the post-secondary institution; 11.Must satisfy the Selected Service registration requirement for recipients of federal aid. The duration of a student's CSAP eligibility is related to the length of time normally required to complete a degree at a particular institution. Specifically, the student's eligibility for a CSAP award will be based on the satisfactory progress standards of the institution for federal campus-based financial aid programs. If a student is in a dual degree program at a four-year college or university that results in the simultaneous awarding of both an undergraduate and a graduate or professional degree, the student shall be considered eligible for CSAP only for the undergraduate portion of the program.|
