Students are eligible to receive a maximum of 1 full time Federal Pell Grant Award in any award year. If you have received Federal Pell Grant funding in both the Fall and Spring semester for 12 or more units each semester, or for Summer semester at another college that was paid out of the same academic award year, it is likely you have exhausted your annual eligibility and will be ineligible to receive Federal Pell Grant funding in Summer.
