Federal Grants

Federal Grants

Federal Pell grants are awarded to undergraduate students who have not earned a bachelor's or professional degree. These funds are not required to be paid back. The amount awarded is based on the student's expected family contribution (EFC) and the number of credit hours the student is enrolled for the semester. A student must submit a FAFSA to be eligible.

Grant Totals

Awards are partially based on your EFC as determined by the FAFSA and enrollment. The amount you may receive will depend on your EFC, cost of attendance, enrollment status, and whether you attend school for a full academic year. You may only receive Pell grant funds from one institution at a time.


  • Students enrolled less than full-time may still receive a Pell grant subject to their EFC
  • Lower EFC's typically result in more Pell grants
