Year Round Pell



Summer classes are a great way to accelerate completion of your degree, and it may be more affordable than ever before!

The Consolidated Appropriations Act of 2017 now allows a student to receive Pell Grant funds up to 150% of the student's Pell Grant Schedule Award for an award year. The lifetime eligibility amount is 600% equivalent to six years of Pell Grant funding. The Year-Round Pell Grant will still be calculated in your lifetime eligibility used. To check your lifetime eligibility used log on to National Student Loan Data System (NSLDS) using your FSA ID. 

You might be Eligible!

In certain situations, an eligible student can receive up to 150 percent of his or her scheduled Pell Grant award for the aid year. If a student was eligible to receive Pell Grant and attended full time during the fall and spring semesters, you must be enrolled in at least six credit hours this summer. Students must also meet all other eligibility requirements for federal aid. Summer aid will only pay for classes in which you are enrolled in on the first day of the summer term.  

If a student was eligible to receive Pell Grant and did not attend attend full time in the fall or spring semesters they may have remaining Pell Grant eligibility to use for summer 2019. 

 Year-Round Pell Grant will not change loan amounts.
