Federal Pell Grant Eligibility
Congress adopted a new provision affecting Federal Pell Grant eligibility. The amount of Federal Pell Grant funds a student may receive over their lifetime is limited to the equivalent of six years of full-time enrollment.
Students will be able to check their Pell Grant eligibility by logging into the National Student Loan Data System (NSLDS) Student Access Web site. Students will need to use their Federal Student Aid PIN to the site.
To be eligible for financial aid a student must be matriculated at CCSU, a U.S. citizen or eligible non-citizen, and taking at least six hours per semester.
Special Note: REPEAT COURSEWORK
Changes in federal regulations impact how financial aid can be used for repeated courses. A repeated course is eligible for financial aid if it has never been completed with a grade of D- or higher (passed).
