Act 101 Program Update

Because the Pennsylvania State Budget has not been passed, PHEAA is unable to confirm awards or disburse funds to schools and employers for the current 2015-16 Award Year. This affects all state and federal programs administered by PHEAA.

PHEAA's Act 101 program is a state-funded program which allocates funds to Pennsylvania schools that operate an Act 101 program at their institution. Schools use these funds to provide services to academically and financially disadvantaged students to assist them so they can successfully complete postsecondary study.

New Schools

To be eligible, schools must:

After the application is approved by PHEAA, schools will need to submit a detailed program budget and Participation Agreement (PDF).

Participating Schools

Schools currently participating in the Act 101 program must submit a completed Act 101 Renewal Application (PDF) by June 15 for the 2015-16 academic year.

A new Participation Agreement is not required for schools currently participating in the Act 101 program.
