Grants – money that does not have to be paid back, usually based on need.


Federal Pell Grant
The actual amount of each grant depends on the student’s eligibility which is determined by the results of the student's Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) and the number of credit hours they are enrolled each semester. The Pell grant is offered Fall and Winter semester. It is awarded based on full time status, which is 12 credits or more and will automatically adjust based on actual credit hours of enrollment. Pell Grant pays based on credit hours, not a full or part time status.

The Pell Grant is available for the Summer semester upon request. Please note, if you are awarded Pell during the Summer, the amount that is awarded in the Winter semester will be reduced.

Pell grant awarded for the Spring semester is based on the student’s unused annual eligibility amount.
