Pell Grant eligible students can receive up to 150% of their scheduled Pell award each year. What does this mean for you? If you were a Pell eligible student in the fall and/or spring term, you may qualify for a Pell Grant for the summer term.
To be eligible for a summer Pell Grant, you must:
- Have completed a FAFSA
- Be Pell Grant eligible
- In most cases, there is a requirement to enroll at least half-time (6+ credits)
- Meet Satisfactory Academic Progress (SAP)
- Have lifetime Pell Grant eligibility remaining
Minimum Credits for Summer Pell Grant
If you enrolled full-time (12+ credits) and received the full-time Pell Grant amount for the fall and spring term, you must enroll at least half-time (6+ credits) in summer classes to receive a summer Pell Grant.
If you enrolled part-time for fall or spring term, there is no minimum credit requirement to receive a summer Pell Grant (depending on your EFC and enrollment status).
