Pell Grant

The Federal Pell program provides assistance in the form of a grant to undergraduate students.

Pell eligibility is determined by the Expected Family Contribution (EFC) calculated from the information provided on the FAFSA. The 2019-2020 maximum award is $6,195 for full-time enrollment for two semesters.

The amount of Pell award will depend on the student's EFC, enrollment status and percentage of Lifetime Eligibility Used (LEU). Students are limited to 12 full-time semesters (600%) of Pell grant eligibility during their lifetime. This affects all students regardless of when or where they received their first Pell grant.

Students may not receive Pell Grant funds from more than one school at a time.

Effective with the 2017-2018 award year, students can receive up to 150% of their scheduled award for an award year. To be eligible for the additional Pell Grant funds, the student must be otherwise eligible to receive Pell grant funds for the payment period and must be enrolled at least half-time. The additional Pell will be included in the student's LEU.
