    Pell Grants are FREE monies for those who qualify for them; unlike loans, they DO NOT need to be repaid. Pell Grants are awarded to undergraduate students who have not earned a bachelor's or professional degree.  
        
    •  
     
    Pell Grant awards for the school year are based upon enrollment beginning with the fall semester. To receive a Pell Grant payment students must submit their Student Aid Report to the Financial Aid Office by their last day of enrollment.   
       
    •  
     
    Students who have completed all financial aid requirements, may charge tuition, fees, and books from the college bookstore to the maximum awards for a semester at semester award minus the amount owed to the college.  
       
    •  
     
    Withdrawing from all classes or failure to continue attending after receiving this disbursement may require you to repay a part of your award.  For more information see Financial Aid Refund & Repayment in the CBC Catalog or see your Financial Aid Advisor.

      *NEW* Summer Pell Grant Awards  
        
    •  
     
    Beginning with 2017-2018 school year, an eligible student will have the opportunity to receive Year Round Pell for Summer 2018 even if they received full Federal Pell Grant during Fall and Spring semesters. 
        
    •  
     
     An example of how Year Round Pell will work is: if an eligble student received full time pell grant ($2960) for fall semester and full time pell grant ($2960) for spring semester, they would be eligible to receive up to $2960 for summer 2018 semester. Students must be enrolled in at least 6 hours to be eligible. Under Year Round Pell, a student would be eligible to recieve 150% of their scheduled Federal Grant during one academic year. 
        
      Calculation of Pell Grant Awards   
       
    •  
     
    The Pell Grant Award is based upon (1) Expected Family Contribution (EFC), (2) the number of hours a student is enrolled, and (3) cost of education.  
        
    •  
     
    A student must be enrolled for at least twelve (12) hours to receive the full Pell Grant award; students enrolled for less than twelve (12) semester hours will receive a proportionate award based upon their enrollment.
