Federal grants are not available for students who have already completed a bachelor's or professional degree program, including completing the equivalent academic program curriculum requirements.
The Federal Pell Grant program is funded by the U.S. Department of Education. Award amounts will vary based on your estimated family contribution (EFC) as determined by your FAFSA and your enrollment status. If you are not enrolled for the semester at the time of your initial award, the amount will be based on an anticipated full-time status. Financial aid awards are based on enrollment as of 4:30 p.m. on the Pell Recalculation Date for each semester.
Lifetime Pell Grant eligibility is limited to 12 semesters, or the equivalent. You can check your lifetime eligibility used (LEU) through the National Student Loan Data System (NSLDS). Learn more about this limit.
Some remedial courses may be considered for Pell Grant eligibility. This is based on recommendations from an academic advisor and completion of a Remedial Class Recommendation form.
Students with remaining Pell Grant eligibility at the end of the academic year may qualify for the Pell grant for summer. Learn more about summer financial aid.
