Federal Grants

Federal Pell Grant: For undergraduate students working toward a first bachelor's degree. The amount of one's grant is determined by the cost of attendance, enrollment status and the Expected Family Contribution (EFC) shown on the Student Aid Report. The lower the EFC is, the higher the award will be. A student with an EFC of 0 (zero) has maximum eligibility. The Pell Grant is presumed to be the first source of aid to the student. Award amounts range from $692 to $6,895 for the 2022-2023 academic year. Award amounts are prorated if the student is enrolled less than full-time.
