Prorating the Pell Grant
The federal Pell grant requires full-time enrollment to receive the full awarded amount. If you are enrolled less than full-time, your Pell grant will automatically prorate based on your enrollment. For example, if your annual award is $4000, you will receive a maximum of $2000 per semester if you are full-time. If you are half-time, you will receive only $1000 per semester, and if you are less than half-time, you will receive only $500 per semester.
