Pell Grant amounts are determined by the EFC, as determined by the US Department of Education after filing the FAFSA, and based on enrollment status, i.e., full-time, ¾ time, ½ time, less than ½ time.  See the Pell Charts below for the academic year you are attending to view all possible Pell award amounts based on your EFC and enrollment status.
