Year-round Pell Grant

Pell Grant eligible students can receive up to 150% of their scheduled Pell award for each year.

What does this mean for you?

If you were eligible for the Pell Grant during the fall 2018 and/or spring 2019 semester(s), you may qualify for additional Pell Grant funding for the summer 2019 semester!


  • Pell Grant Eligible, as determined by the 2018/19 FAFSA
  • Enroll in summer courses, at Southeast
    • A student who was enrolled full-time during the fall and spring semesters must be enrolled in at least 6 credit hours for the summer.
    • A student who was enrolled part-time during the fall or spring semester may have remaining Pell Grant eligibility.
  • Meeting Satisfactory Academic Progress
  • Have Lifetime Pell Grant eligibility remaining
    • You can check your remaining eligibility level online at Login using your FSA ID and view your Lifetime Eligibility Units (LEU) on the “Financial Aid Review” page.

Important Facts

  • The maximum timeframe students can receive the Pell Grant is the equivalent of twelve full-time semesters (one full-time semester of Pell equals 50%).
  • Since students can only receive aid for up to 150% of the program length (measured in credit hours), make sure to take courses required for your degree.
  • Pell Grant alone is not enough to cover the full cost of attending summer classes, but it can be very close!

Next Steps

  • Enroll for summer courses! (required for your degree)
  • We will review your eligibility in April (as long as you are enrolled for summer) and send you an email letting you know your award letter is available.
