The Pell Grant Program is a federal assistance program designed to provide financial assistance to students attending postsecondary educational institutions. Pell Grants are intended to be the "floor" of a financial assistance package and may be combined with other forms of assistance in order to meet the full costs of education. The amount of the student's Pell Grant is determined on the basis of her/his financial resources. It is a grant, not a loan. Attendance and satisfactory progress of the student are monitored. Students must meet obligations to maintain the grant award. WIA recipients must apply for a Pell Grant. Pell Grant Applications are available in the Office of Student Affairs. Applicants may also apply online at www.fafsa.ed.gov
