Federal Pell Grants

Important new information regarding lifetime Pell grant eligibility.

This is need-based money from the federal government that generally does not need to be repaid. The amount awarded is based on the Expected Family Contribution (EFC) as determined by the US Department of Education using information provided by you on your Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). It does not need to be repaid unless you do not complete the requirements for the semester. Repayment requirements will be determined by the Financial Aid Office. The Pell grant can be prorated to accommodate full-time or part-time enrollment. A minimum 2.0 GPA is required to maintain eligibility. Students who have exceeded 150% of the amount of time it takes to earn a bachelors degree will no longer be eligible for the Pell grant. Eligibility is determined by the US Department of Education by filling out the FAFSA.
