Beginning with the 2012-2013 academic year, a student can receive the Federal Pell Grant for only 12 full-time equivalent semesters. This includes all prior semesters the grant has been received. This means students who have already received the Federal Pell Grant for six years of full time enrollment will no longer be eligible to receive Pell Grant funds. Our records show that you have reached this limit. We are sorry, but there is no appeal process.
