New federal laws limit the amount of Pell Grant funds a student can receive while working towards their undergraduate degree.
Beginning July 1, 2012 any student receiving a Pell Grant cannot exceed over 600% or 6 full-time years of grant funding.
It is important that you track your Lifetime Eligibility Usage (LEU) while enrolled at Evergreen Valley College. If you plan to transfer to a 4 year university, you may need to save a portion of your Pell Grant Eligibility (PLE) to help pay for your educational costs while at the university.
We recommend that you save between 250 - 300% of their Pell Lifetime Eligibility if they plan to transfer to a university.
