Description

Two-Year College Transfer Grant Program; amount of award and eligibility criteria. Increases from $8,000 to $12,000 the maximum Expected Family Contribution, as calculated by the federal government using the family's financial information reported on the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA), for a student to be eligible for the Two-Year College Transfer Grant Program. The bill permits a student to enroll in a four-year institution by the spring following the award of an associate's degree and remain eligible for a grant under the program. Current law requires a student to enroll in a four-year institution by the following fall to be eligible. The bill also provides that the amount of each award will be determined in the appropriation act. Under current law, each award is fixed at $1,000 per student per year. Amends § 23-38.10:10, § 23-38.10:11, of the Code of Virginia. Read the Bill »
