The Federal Pell Grant awards are based on financial need and are available to students who do not have a bachelor’s degree. Full-time status for the Pell grant is 12 or more credits per term. Students enrolling in 9-11 credits generally receive 75 percent of a full-time award, and those enrolling in 6-8 credits generally receive 50 percent of a full-time award. Students may be eligible to receive federal Pell grant funds at less-than half-time enrollment status. Federal Pell Grant Program regulations prohibit a student from receiving a Pell Grant from more than one school at the same time.
**Based on federal regulations, Anoka-Ramsey Community College policy is that your Federal Pell Grant will be paid to you based on the credits you are enrolled in at the end of the free drop/add period. This is the fifth day of the semester for fall, spring and summer semester. If you add a class after this date, your Pell Grant will not be increased based on this change in enrollment.
