Federal Pell Grant for Eligible Undergraduates
If you were enrolled less than full-time during the 2016-2017 academic year or did not enroll for the fall 2016 or spring 2017 semester and you received a federal Pell grant, you may apply for the remaining portion of your federal Pell grant for the summer. The amount you receive depends upon on the number of credits for which you are registered and your remaining eligibility. Changes in attendance can result in the reduction or cancellation of your Pell grant.
