Maximum Lifetime Pell Eligibility

Effective July 1, 2012, all Pell grant recipients are subject to a lifetime maximum of 12 semesters or its equivalent. The new regulation is based on 12 semesters or 6 years. For example, a student who attends full-time for a full year would have received 2 semesters or 1 year of his overall Pell eligibility. The calculation of the duration of a student’s eligibility will include all years and terms the student received the Federal Pell Grant.
