A Federal Pell Grant, unlike a loan, does not have to be repaid. Federal Pell Grants are usually awarded to undergraduate students only, with exceptional financial need and have not earned a bachelor's or a professional degree. You may not be eligible to receive a Federal Pell Grant if you are incarcerated in a federal or state penal institution or are subject to an involuntary civil commitment upon completion of a period of incarceration for a forcible or non-forcible sexual offense.
All students may receive Pell Grants for up to the equivalent of 12 full-time semesters, measured by percentage of Scheduled Award(s) Disbursed Lifetime Eligibility Used or a lifetime maximum of 600%.
