Federal Pell Grants are awarded to undergraduate students who have not previously earned a bachelor's, master's, or professional degree.
Award: The maximum Pell Grant award for the 2021–2022 award year (July 1, 2021, through June 30, 2022) is $6,495.
Students who wish to decline and/or request a refund of any Pell Grant disbursement within the same award year must complete and submit a signed Federal Pell Grant Decline/Return Acknowledgement form to the University. Students will be fully responsible for a balance created by declining/returning a Pell Grant. Students will no longer have an option to decline or return the Pell Grant if the document is not received prior to the award year expiring. Students must contact the University’s Student Finance Office to request for decline and return of the Pell Grant.
