Federal Pell Grants

The Pell Grant program is the foundation of federal student financial aid. You’re eligible for a grant if you have financial need as determined from your Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA).

How much money you receive in a Pell Grant is based on three factors:

  • Your Expected Family Contribution, as determined from your FAFSA
  • Whether you attend school full time or part time
  • Whether you attend school for a full academic year or less

Here are a few other things you should know about federal Pell Grants:

  • Any other financial aid you might receive does not affect the amount of your Pell Grant.
  • You can receive a Pell Grant for all three semesters, provided you meet certain requirements, each academic year.
  • You can only receive a Pell Grant for the equivalent of 12 full-time semesters over your lifetime.
  • Grants are not available to WCC students who have already received a bachelor’s degree.
  • You must meet all eligibility requirements for financial aid.
  • The maximum federal Pell Grant is $6,095 for two full-time semesters in the 18-19 academic year. Students who attend a third semester may be eligible for additional funds based on enrollment.

If you qualify for a Pell Grant, WCC’s Financial Aid office will send an award letter to your student email account. The letter will list the grant amount.
