- Method used to determine amount awarded :
The amount of money disbursed to students was determined using the methodology below:
Each full-time, non-Pell eligible student was disbursed $448; full-time Pell eligible students were disbursed an additional 40.4%, bringing the total disbursement to $629.
Disbursements to students were rounded up to the nearest whole dollar.
Part-time students received prorated disbursements, based on credit hours billed, at a rate of 75% that of a full-time student.
Undergraduate students are considered full-time when enrolled for 12 or more credits while graduate students are considered full-time when enrolled for 9 or more credits. These values were used in prorating the disbursements. For example, a part-time undergraduate non-Pell eligible student enrolled in 3 credits would be disbursed $84 (= 3/12*.75*448).
