Federal Pell Grant
Grants do not need to be repaid. The Pell Grant is based on financial need, and awarded to eligible students in an undergraduate program. The maximum Pell Grant award is $5,550 per aid year. The actual award depends on the student's enrollment status each quarter (full time or half time).
Throughout the year, other need- and merit-based scholarships and grants are available to our students. Per federal regulations, scholarship awards may decrease the amount of financial aid funds available to the recipient.
