Federal Pell Grant Program

Eligibility is determined by the Pell Grant processor and is based on a student’s Estimated Family Contribution (EFC). The student must submit the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) and request that pertinent financial data be sent to the Pell Grant processing agency for determination of eligibility. The results are forwarded to the student in the form of a Student Aid Report (SAR) Electronic filing results will be sent directly to the institution in the form of an Institutional Student Information Record (ISIR). Pell Grant eligibility is limited to six full-time years.
