Financial Aid Law Updates


Changes to Financial Aid Laws

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 or come see us in the K. Ray Bailey Student Services Building.
