Federal Grants

Pell Grants

  • Academic year amount
    • The amount you receive depends on your FAFSA information and enrollment. Students receive their maximum Pell grant when enrolled full time each semester (12+ credits). The award will be reduced for less than full-time enrollment. Students should notify us if they will be enrolled in less than 12 credits per semester. Amounts can change yearly.
  • Lifetime limits
    • The amount of Federal Pell Grant funds you may receive over your lifetime is limited by federal law to be the equivalent of six years of full time Pell grant funding. If you enroll less-than-full-time, you may receive Pell Grant beyond six years. Because the maximum amount of Pell Grant funding you can receive each year is equal to 100%, the six-year equivalent is 600%. You can check your percentage of Pell Grant received. If your Pell Grant percentage is less than 600%, you may still receive a Pell Grant.
