NEW for Fall 2012:
Federal Pell Grant Program Change — Duration of Eligibility
On Dec. 23, 2011 Congress signed into law the Consolidated Appropriations Act, 2012 (Public Law 112-74) which significantly impacts Federal Student Aid Programs. The Federal Pell Grant Duration of Eligibility amendment has set a maximum amount of eligibility for Pell Grant for ALL students who have received or will receive Pell Grant. In 2008-09, a cap of 18 semesters (or its equivalent) was put in place for students who first received aid during the 2008-09 academic year. This new amendment limits the amount of Pell Grant to 12 semesters (or its equivalent) for all students.
The following is an explanation from Student Aid on the Web:
Once you have received a Pell Grant for 12 semesters, or the equivalent, you will no longer be eligible for additional Pell Grants.
If you have questions regarding your financial aid status or eligibility, please visit the Financial Aid Office in Room 208 of the Student Center, or call us at (936) 633-5291.
