This is a much later replay but may be helpful for people searching.
With a EFC around 7-8,000, was awarded PA Grant of 400 +change for out of state school, then transferred to in state school and the PA grant increased to about 1,700-1,800 per semester. P.S. Also received $740 summer state grant for two summer courses.
Oh yes, forgot, temporarily the grant was decreased twice, once a to $1300+, once to $818 per semester - 1) we have "pre-tax" withholding from pay-check by employer and PHEAA automatically excluded it as untaxed. After sending in a letter from employer to PHEAA with explanation that withholding is only for medical, the grant was reinstated. Then 2) D lives off campus and the amount was decreased [by school] until the signed lease was received by school.
