Year-Round Pell Grants

Year-Round Pell Grants

The Federal Pell Grant Program now allows FULL-TIME eligible students to receive the Federal Pell Grant throughout the award year, (Fall, Spring AND Summer).

Year-Round Pell allows students to receive up to 150 percent of a regular grant award over the course of the academic year so that they can continue taking classes in the summer and finish their degrees faster than they would otherwise. 

What you need to qualify

  • Be eligible for Federal Pell Grant
  • Be enrolled during Fall and Spring semester (full-time)
  • Be enrolled during Summer (at least 6 credit hours)

If you qualify, you will be notified via preferred email and must accept your award to receive Pell grant funds. 

NOT ENROLLED FULL TIME in Fall and Spring?

You may still be eligible for Summer Pell! Contact Financial Aid Services for details.
