Year Round Pell Policy
Beginning with the 2009-10 academic year, students may be eligibile for up to two times their annual Pell award. For the summer of 2010, during the transition peiod for the new Pell Grant awards, we will award Pell Grant funds from the 2009-10 year as a "trailer." If students use their first scheduled award and they enroll in a minimum of 6 credit hours during the summer term, they may be eligible for a 2nd scheduled award. For the summer 2010 only, no consideration will be given to 2010-11 student eligibility during the cross-over payment period (the summer term) and no consideration will be given to the academic progression requirements.
For the summer of 2011, we will consider the summer term to be a "cross-over" payment period and will pay Pell Grant funds out of 2010-11 or 2011-12, whichever award year provides the student with the most Pell Grant eligibility. Students must have a valid ISIR on file for the year used to determine Pell Grant eligibility. Starting with 2010-2011, students must meet the applicable academic progression requirement for a second scheduled award.
