Pell Grant Schedules & Disbursements
The Pell grant is awarded as a dollar amount to be used for the aid year. Pell is designed to pay for 2 trimesters of full time attendance. CSU Global has 3 trimesters in the aid year, so if you attend full time then it is likely you will not have Pell during your Spring trimester classes. If you attend half time or less you may still have eligibility left over in Spring.
Pell is awarded based on credit hours attended in the term. If you attend more credits you will get more Pell, but your bill will also increase.
At the current time, a Pell grant will never be enough to cover the full cost of your class(es) so you will need to cover the remaining balance by accepting student loans, or making out of pocket payments. Pell grant amounts can change from year to year.
Your Pell grant is automatically accepted and will pay out in each term on the "Approximate FA disbursement date" as seen on the academic calendar.
