Summer Pell Grant


  • If a student is eligible for Pell Grant funds during the Summer term, the award letter will show the maximum amount of funding remaining for the award year.
  • The actual amount a student will receive, though, may be different than what is shown on this award letter, based on the student’s total enrolled credit hours during the Summer term.
  • Refer to the Pell Grant chart on our website to determine Pell Grant eligibility based on credit hours.

  • If you used 100% of your annual Pell Grant allocation during the Fall/Winter (because you were enrolled full-time in both the Fall and Winter semesters), you must be enrolled at least ½ time (a minimum of 6 credit hours) in Summer to receive additional Pell Grant funds through the year-round Pell Grant eligibility rules.  If you drop classes in Summer, this may jeopardize your eligibility for funding!
