Pell Grant Information

Research shows that students who take summer classes are more likely to graduate. In addition, you may save money by graduating in less time.

The Federal Department of Education has increased the amount of Pell Grant that is available for summer!

Even if you attended full-time during the Fall 2018 and Spring 2019 semester, you may have some Pell funding for summer courses if you are enrolled in at least 6 credits!! Now you may have summer Pell eligibility for the amount of your full time eligibility for one semester.

Example: If you were awarded a full time Pell grant of $4000 for the year - $2000 each semester, you would now be eligible for up to another $2000 in the summer if you are enrolled in 12 credits; $1000 if you are in 6 credits!). All other eligibility requirements stay the same. File a 2018-19 FAFSA if you have not yet done so at

Registration begins April 8 (online), and April 9 (in person)! Once you have registered, the Financial Aid Office will determine the amount you are eligible to receive for the summer and update your award letter. Check your Self-Service Financial Aid in myKC.
