Federal Pell Grant
The Pell Grant is available to undergraduate students who demonstrate financial need. The grant amount is based on income, assets, family size, and the cost of education. Effective with the 2012-13 award year the Higher Education Act, HEA, has limited the lifetime eligibility to receive a Federal Pell Grant to 12 full-time semesters or the equivalent of 600%.

    Application Process: Eligibility is determined upon Adelphi's receipt of the processed FAFSA. Students should complete and file the FAFSA as soon as possible after January 1, but no later than February 15 to ensure maximum eligibility.

    Range of Awards: The Pell Grant ranges from a minimum of $602 per year to a maximum of $5,730 per year. (Amounts range depending upon enrollment status).

    Special Provisions: The Pell Grant does not have to be repaid. However, federal regulations require that students meet specific standards of satisfactory progress in order to receive federal financial assistance. Specific information regarding those standards will be detailed in each financial aid award letter. It is also available in the Office of Student Financial Services, the Undergraduate Bulletin and the Directory of Classes.

    Waiver of Standards of Academic Progress: A one-time waiver may be granted to the recipient of federal financial assistance who fails to complete the program or make satisfactory academic progress. The student must initiate the request for the waiver through the Office of Academic Services and Retention and must be able to document one of three reasons for the request: death in the student's family, serious illness of the student, or other mitigating circumstances beyond the student's control. Approval of the waiver is not automatic. After a careful review of the documentation, the student will be notified in writing if the one-time waiver will be granted.

    Notification: Eligible students will receive a copy of their Student Aid Report (SAR) from the U.S. Department of Education. If it is determined that you are Pell eligible, further instructions will be sent to you so that your award may be finalized.

    For further information: To determine Pell Grant Status, request a duplicate SAR, or make SAR corrections call 1.800.4.Fed.Aid or go to fafsa.ed.gov.

    In accordance with new federal regulations Adelphi will make funds available for books and supplies for Pell Grant eligible students based on an anticipated credit balance.  Simply put, ten (10) days before the beginning of the semester and up to seven (7) days after the start of the semester, Adelphi will assess if we could have disbursed federal Title IV funds (Pell, SEOG, Perkins loans, Stafford loans, Parent Plus loans) to a Pell recipient’s student account and, presuming those funds were disbursed, the student would have a credit balance.  We will use the following process: 

    1. Eligible students will receive an email notification to their Adelphi email account informing them that they qualify for an advance of funds for books/supplies.
    2. An email will be sent to the Adelphi bookstore indicating maximum eligibility for the anticipated books/supplies credit.  The maximum will be the lesser of the anticipated credit balance or $700 per semester.
    3. After receiving the email students will visit the Adelphi bookstore and make books/supplies purchases.  The Adelphi student account will be billed for the amount of this anticipated credit and will be adjusted based on actual usage.
    4. If you wish to opt out of this process you must respond via the instructions included in your email.
    5.  The anticipated credit balance is subject to change if there are revisions to the financial aid awards.  Changes in enrollment, housing status and cost of attendance or application information may cause revisions to financial aid awards.

    For the determination of total spring enrollment federal regulations permit the combination of intersession credits with traditional spring credits.
