I wan to know why does the college hold some of my financial aid money and do not give a full refund. example if I had 3000.and my tuition was 900. they only give me some of what left and they keep some of the pell grant. Is that done on all pell grant? or is it on certain students? I thought that the college is suppose to give the students whats left after all the fees are paid. Role: student
No, the college does not hold your financial aid money. Your amount of refund may vary depending on the number of credit hours you are taking. The Pell amount of $3000 is based on attendance at full-time status (12 credits hours). If you are enrolled in less than full-status, your Pell amount is adjusted to the number of hours you are taking.
The college does refund to you the remaining amount of the Pell grant after tuition, fees, books and supplies have been paid. Keep in mind that your award amount depends on the number of credit hours you are taking. The amount of money returned to you depends on your enrollment status at the time of the refund, which is the census date of the semester. The census date is the official enrollment date for the semester and each semester has its own date.
The Financial Aid office staff will be happy to answer your questions. Please stop by when convenient. The office is located in room A-149 in the Administration building.
