Summer Pell Grant
Pell Grant eligibility for Summer will be determined by using any remaining Pell Grant eligibility from the Fall/Spring of the award year. For example, if you were paid for full-time enrollment Fall 2014 and Spring 2015 you received 100% of your awards for 2014-15 then you have no remaining eligibility for Summer 2015 Grant payments.
Summer payment is contingent upon enrollment in eligible units and maintaining Satisfactory Academic Progress.
Students who do not wish to receive their Pell grant for the summer semester must contact the FA office in writing/email denying summer Pell grant.
