Priority File Completion Deadline
If all required forms are submitted to us by July 07 and

  • you qualify for a Pell grant;
  • you are registered for classes which begin the first week of fall term;
  • you are not on disqualified status;

Then you should expect to receive your first Pell grant payment by the first scheduled refund date for fall.

Files completed after July 07 are not guaranteed to be processed in time for the first fall payment. Files are reviewed in the order received. The later you complete your file, the later your first payment is likely to be.
