All Pell Grant recipients are subject to Lifetime Eligibility Limits. The amount of Federal Pell Grant you may receive during your entire undergraduate career is limited to 12 full time semesters (equivalent to 6 years). Since the maximum amount of Pell Grant funding you can receive each year is equal to 100 percent, the six-year equivalent is 600 percent.
Once you have reached the Pell Lifetime Eligibility Limit, you will no longer be eligible for Federal Pell Grant. You may check the status of your Pell Lifetime Eligibility online by logging into InSite and reviewing the Financial Aid menu or signing into the National Student Loan Data System (NSLDS) website. Follow the link to learn more about the Pell Lifetime Eligibility Limits.
All financial aid students are required to check their DVC student email account through InSite on a regular basis in order to receive notifications, file status updates, announcements, and further instructions from the Financial Aid Office.
