Yes, Pell Grants are awarded to students who qualify for this need-based Federal Grant based on information communicated by the FAFSA. During verification a student’s need level is re-evaluated, which may impact the student’s ability to receive a Pell Grant. Sometimes, Pell Grant awards may increase in value from these changes, but more typically, verification may reduce the amount. Also, your Pell Grant award may be prorated if you are enrolled as less than full-time.
