Beginning with the 2017-2018 academic year, an eligible student may now receive full Federal Pell Grant for summer 2018 even if they received a full Federal Pell Grant during the fall and spring semesters.
To be eligible for additional Pell Grant funds:
- student must have completed the 2017-18 FAFSA and must be otherwise eligible to receive Pell Grant funds for the payment period
- student must be enrolled at least half-time (6 credit hours) during the summer term
- student must be maintaining satisfactory academic progress to receive financial aid
Important Note: The amount of Federal Pell Grant funds a student may receive over his or her lifetime is limited by federal law to be 600 percent. If a student's lifetime eligibility used (LEU) equals or exceeds 600 percent, the student may no longer receive Pell Grant funding. Students can log on to www.nslds.ed.gov to view their Pell Grant LEU.
