What is a Pell Grant?


Learn about Pell Grants by watching the Financial Aid TV video.

**Pell Grant Change: Beginning Fall 2012, students are now limited to 12 semesters (or 600%) of Pell Grant Eligibility during their lifetime. This change affects all students regardless of when or where they received their first Pell Grant. Students that have already used 600% of their Pell Grant eligibility will no longer be eligible to receive a Pell Grant starting Fall 2012. **

Students are automatically considered for a federal Pell grant when they file the FAFSA application. The Federal Pell Grant is money that a student does not need to repay. The student must meet the minimum eligibility requirements. Pell grants range from $606 to $6,495 for the 2021-2022 academic year at Laney College.

The enrollment status of the student, i.e. full time, three-quarter time, half time, or less than half time will have a proportional effect on the amount of money a student will receive.
