Fall 2014

Important Information for Fall Disbursements

The Pell Grant is paid to students in 2 disbursements per semester, as indicated below, based on the number of units the student is enrolled in at that time. The additional Pell Grant disbursements listed below are for certain cases only. Examples include newly processed applications, officially enrolling in a class for which you had been waitlisted, and a late-start class having begun since the previous disbursement. A student would only qualify for an additional disbursement if the increase in units elevated him or her into the next tier of funding for which they are eligible, e.g. half time, 3/4 time, or full time status. Contact your technician with questions.
