Gov. Justice has suspended the FAFSA requirement for the Higher Education Adult Part-Time Student Grant for the 2024-25 academic year. Click here for more details about how to be considered for a 2024-25 award.

The goal of the Higher Education Adult Part-Time Student (HEAPS) Grant Program is to encourage and enable West Virginia students who demonstrate financial need to continue their education on a part-time basis at undergraduate institutions of higher education.

Award amounts vary by institution based on enrollment and may be renewed.

Students must complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) annually and apply with their institution to be considered.

How to Apply

Complete the FAFSA then contact your institution’s financial aid office for the HEAPS Grant application and other requirement information.
