Do I need to be a full time student to be eligible to receive a Pell Grant?

Financial Aid
You do not have to be enrolled full time to receive a Pell grant. However, the Pell Grant award is prorated based upon enrollment status. The award letter sent to the student indicating their Pell Grant amount is based upon a full time status and is prorated based upon the number of hours a student is enrolled as of the census date of the semester they are enrolled.

o   12 hours or more = full award

o   9-11 hours = three-fourths of the award

o   6-8 hours = half of the award

o   1-5 hours = a fractional amount of the award
