Finishing your diploma or degree on time just became more important than ever. A new federal law shortens the length of time students will be eligible for Pell Grants from 18 semesters to 12, beginning with the 2012-13 school year. This is retroactive so they will count previous years you were awarded Pell Grant money. For more information, contact the Financial Aid Office at 398-7530.
