Federal PELL Grant
The Federal PELL Grant is awarded to eligible students working towards their first bachelors degree. Eligibility is automatically determined based on the Expected Family Contribution (EFC) and enrollment status (full-time, half-time, less than half-time). The maximum Federal Pell Grant award amount is $5,815 for the 2016-17 academic year.
Recent federal legislation will affect all students beginning with the 2012-13 year (including Summer 2012), limiting Pell eligibility to the equivalent of 12 full-time semesters (reduced from the prior limit of the equivalent of 18 full-time semesters).
