Your enrollment affects Pell grant funds!-You must enroll in at least 12 hours to receive your maximum amount of funds for Pell.
-Your Pell will adjust down if you enroll in less than 12 hours.
-You must also enroll during posted registration times to receive your Pell grant funds.
-The federal government requires that we set a freeze date after which your Pell grant cannot be increased due to changes in your schedule.
-Our freeze date is normally the last day of Drop/Add. For dates and deadlines check out the Scoop online.
-The Pell grant is only available to Undergraduate students.
-Year-round Pell grant has been discontinued. However, if you enroll in less than 12 hours in the fall or spring, you may receive the remainder of your eligibility from the fall/spring semesters in the summer provided you are still eligible for financial aid.
This means that if you take at least 12 hours in the fall and spring semesters, you will not have any Pell left for the summer, since you will have already received your maximum amount. If you are a half-time or three-quarter time student in either fall or spring, you may have some Pell left over that you will be able to receive in the summer.
-NEW! The Department of Education has established lifetime limits for PELL funding. A student is not eligible for any more than 600% (approximately 6 years) of PELL funding. Once this limit has been reached you will no longer receive this funding. PELL Lifetime Eligibility Used (PELL LEU) can be checked at http://www.nslds.ed.gov/nslds_SA/.
