Attention: Students Receiving Pell Grants

The US Department of Education has re-instated Year-Round Pell Grants. Year-Round Pell Grants allow students to receive additional Pell Grant beginning 2018 Summer Session. Year-round Pell allows students to receive up to 150 percent of a regular grant award over the course of the academic year so that they can continue taking classes in the summer and finish their degrees faster than they would otherwise. Students must still meet all the eligibility requirements. For more information contact the Financial Aid Office.
