Year Round Pell Grant (Additional Pell Grant for Summer 2018)
The U. S. Department of Education announced that students who received a Pell Grant for the 2017-2018 year may be eligible to receive additional Pell Grant for summer 2018. Students must register and maintain a minimum of six (6) credits during one or more of the summer sessions, and the courses must be part of their planned program. To apply for summer financial aid, complete the Summer 2018 Financial Aid Application and submit it to the Office of Financial Aid and Scholarships.
It is important to note that this change will not result in extra Pell Grant being awarded to a student over the course of their undergraduate enrollment. The maximum time frame that eligible students may receive Pell Grant is for twelve full-time semesters. In the past, a full-time student could only receive two disbursements per year. Now the student will be able to receive up to three Pell Grant disbursements in one academic year (fall, spring and summer). Please click here for more information.
