Pell Grant

The federal Pell Grant is evaluated each academic year based on the student’s FAFSA (Free Application for Federal Student Aid) and the resulting Estimated Family Contribution (EFC) calculation.

The Pell Grant annual award amount is based on:

  • The student's EFC calculation (for 2013-14, the EFC must be 5,081 or less)
  • The student's enrollment status each term of enrollment (full-time, three-quarter-time, half-time, or less-than-half-time)
  • The University's cost of attendance

Changes for 2014-15:

  • To be Pell Grant eligible, the FAFSA EFC must be 5,157 or less.
  • The maximum Pell Grant award for the 2014-15 Award Year is $5,730 (up from $5,645 for 2013-14).
  • For full-time students, the Pell Annual Award amount ranges from $602 up to $5,730.
