Federal PELL Grant Program

Up one level

Financial Aid Programs

The Federal PELL Grant (PELL) is a federally funded Title IV Grant Program available to students who meet certain income guidelines of postsecondary education. The PELL Grant does not require repayment. It is not available to anyone who has received a bachelor’s degree or higher, owes a refund to any Title IV Aid Program, or is in default on a student loan.

The amount of the PELL Grant award will depend on the expected family contribution (EFC) amount shown on the Student Aid Report, regardless if the student is full or part time, the number of federal credit hours enrolled, the cost of attendance, and the size of federal appropriations. Students must reapply each fiscal year (July 1st – June 30th) by completing the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) or the renewal application for the New Year. PELL is not available to students who are learning support status, institutionally accepted, or considered a special admit student.
