Pell Grant Question

<p>So when I log in to my secure app it informs me that I have been awarded $2,675 for the summer term. I was really happy because I figured I would be able to pay for everything w/o loans and have money left over. Unfortunately I was reading the Award Amounts info tab and saw that it said "Federal Pell Grant may be pro-rated for less than 12 credit enrollment."</p>

<p>Does this mean that my pell grant will be cut in half since I am only doing 6 hours? I know that 6 hours is full time for summer school so I was pretty confused. This is my first time in college if that info is of any use. Can anyone shed some light? Thanks!</p>

<p>You won't get 100% if you are below 12 credits, yes.</p>

<p>Have they already cut it in half or will it only be cut after disbursement?</p>

<p>They pro rate it.</p>

<p>Again, have they already cut it in half or will it only be cut after disbursement?</p>

<p>My friend gets $2,675 for a regular semester so Id imagine yours will be halved. Call you school's fin aid office to make sure.</p>

<p>I dont know when the exact "cut off" is for getting 100% or pro rated, but if you were to add a couple classes to bump it up to 12, you should get 100%.</p>
