Federal Pell Grants are available to eligible undergraduate students who have not yet received bachelor’s degrees or professional degrees, are enrolled in degree or certificate programs, and meet program eligibility requirements. Eligibility is also determined on the basis of financial need. A Student’s Expected Family Contribution (EFC) is used in determining need. The EFC, along with a student’s enrollment status and the length of his or her program of study, determine the amount of the student’s award. Funds an eligible student receives from this program do not have to be repaid.
Please note that the school cannot require the borrower to participate in arbitration or any internal dispute resolution process offered by the institution prior to filing a borrower defense to repayment application with the Department pursuant to 685.206(e); the school cannot, in any way, require students to limit, relinquish or waive their ability to pursue filing a borrower defense claim, pursuant to 685.206(e) at any time; and any arbitration, required by a pre-dispute arbitration agreement, tolls (pauses) the limitations period for filing a borrower defense to repayment application pursuant to 685.206(e)(6)(ii).
