Cayuga Community College has the unique opportunity to partner with the U.S. Department of Education to provide federal PELL grants to high school students taking college courses for credit through dual enrollment at the college campus.

There is no cost to the student to participate in the PELL Experience, but students have to complete a FAFSA. Through this program, Juniors and Seniors in Oswego County and Cayuga County schools can attend Cayuga’s Auburn and Fulton campuses for free.

While on campus, students attend college courses and participate in a guided study hall where they learn about campus resources, financial aid, and navigating the college experience.
