Year Round Pell Census

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).
