Federal Pell Grant

The Federal Pell Grant is awarded by the U.S. Department of Education and is based on the Expected Family Contribution (EFC). The EFC is determined by information entered on the FAFSA. Pell Grants are awarded to both full and part-time undergraduate students who have not earned a bachelor’s or professional degree.

Please note that any changes to the FAFSA data may result in an adjustment to your Pell Grant, including but not limited to:

  • Review of your FAFSA due to Verification.
  • Enrollment less than full-time (12 credits undergraduate). Students who will be enrolled less than full-time must complete the Enrollment Update Form. We also recommend that you contact your financial aid counselor to discuss how part-time enrollment may impact your awards.
  • Corrections made by staff due to conflicting university data.

You will receive an electronic notification each time your award package has been adjusted.
