Minnesota State Grant
For undergraduate students that are residents of Minnesota, demonstrate financial need, attend a school in Minnesota and have not exceeded the equivalent of 8 full-time semesters of attendance. Winona State University calculates eligibility for enrollment levels ranging from 3 to 15 credits. Students must submit the FAFSA within 30 days from the beginning of the term in order to qualify for a Minnesota State Grant.
To receive the full amount of the State Grant, you must be a full-time student (registered for 15 credits per term). Less than full-time students will have their grant prorated based on the actual number of credits. If you were awarded State Grant your award letter will contain a chart that will show you what your State Grant amount will be based on each term of enrollment.
Why does my Awards screen say State Grant 18-18 credits?
The 18-18 credits on the Awards tab is just a place holder until the State Grant is disbursed onto your student account. Once the grant is disbursed, the number of credits that the state grant paid will show up.
