Summer Financial Aid

Year-round Pell Grant Awards You may be eligible to receive a Federal Pell Grant for the summer semester even if you received a full Federal Pell Grant during the fall and spring semesters. Year-round Pell allows students to receive up to 150 percent of a regular grant award over the course of the academic year so they can continue taking classes in the summer and finish their degrees faster. Note: Any Pell Grant received will be included in determining the student’s Pell Grant duration of eligibility and Lifetime Eligibility Used (LEU). To be eligible for additional Pell Grant funds:

- student must be otherwise eligible to receive Pell Grant funds for the payment period
- student must be enrolled at least half-time in the payment period (6 credit hours) during the summer term
- student must be maintaining satisfactory academic progress
