Federal Pell Lifetime Eligibility Used (LEU)

The Consolidated Appropriations Act, 2012 (Public Law 112-74) established regulations relative to Federal Pell Lifetime Eligibility. This law significantly impacted the Federal Pell Grant Program. Effective, July 1, 2012, students are now limited to 600% of Federal Pell grant eligibility during their lifetime. This change affects all students, regardless of when or where they received their first Federal Pell Grant. Students who have received 600% Federal Pell Grant as of 2011-2012 will no longer be eligible to receive a Federal Pell Grant beginning with the Fall 2012 semester and thereafter.
