Why is my Pell Grant different in the previous Trimester?
As of July 1, 2017, the Department of Education adjusted the amount of Pell grant that you can receive in a FAFSA year (July 1 - June 30), allowing you to receive additional Pell funds even if you have already received 100% of your award. In order to utilize those additional funds you must reach half time status (6 credit hours) in the trimester. If you currently take 1 course (3 credits) per term, then you will be eligible for additional Pell grant once you reach 6 credits in the trimester.
Please reach out to your student advisor with additional questions about receiving Pell.
