The Federal Pell Grant is available to undergraduate students pursuing their first bachelor’s degree who demonstrate financial need as determined by the information reported on the student’s FAFSA. The amount of the Pell Grant is determined by the student’s EFC and the number of hours for which the student is enrolled.
The maximum award amount varies from year to year. The award amount may increase or decrease based on enrollment status and, if selected, a change to a student’s EFC as a result of verification.
Pell Grant Duration of Eligibility
Federal Pell Grant eligibility is limited to the equivalent of 12 semesters of full-time enrollment or its equivalent. Additional eligibility criteria and limitations will apply.
