What is It

The Federal Pell Grant provides undergraduate students with assistance in meeting the cost of attendance at eligible public and private post-secondary institutions.  It is funded through the Federal Government on the basis of need.  The Pell Grant is money that does not have to be repaid.


Federal Pell Grants are available to students pursuing their first undergraduate degree. You may not receive Federal Pell Grant payments for the same term from more than one institution, even if enrolled part-time at each institution. 


Federal Pell Grant awards range from $400-$4,050 per year (subject to congressional appropriations)

The amount of your Federal Pell Grant will be prorated if you are enrolled for fewer than 12 credit hours per semester.

To Apply

To apply for a Federal Pell Grant you must complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) annually. 


Eligibility for the Federal Pell Grant is based upon your Expected Family Contribution (EFC) determined from the FAFSA.  Apply online at

Special Important Note

Students receiving the Federal Pell Grant must comply with both Satisfactory Academic Progress (SAPS) criteria as well as the Family Education Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA).
