Pell Grants - Financial Aid Awards

Why is the amount of my Pell Grant different from the amount listed on my award letter?

The federal government makes final Pell Grant awards based on your actual enrollment status and is contingent upon verification of any discrepancies in data you provide on your financial aid application. In addition, the amount on your award letter is made assuming that you will enroll full-time. In general, if you enroll half- time, you receive half of the award; if you enroll three-quarter-time, you receive three quarters of the award; if you enroll full-time, you receive the full award.
