Beginning with the 2017/18 academic year, 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 2017 and/or spring 2018 semester(s),
you may qualify for additional Pell Grant funding for the summer 2018 semester!

- 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!
