Federal Pell Grant
The Pell Grant Program is an entitlement program for first degree undergraduates: awards are noncompetitive and any student who meets the eligibility criteria will receive funds. Application is made by filing a Free Application For Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) via the Internet at www.fafsa.ed.gov. Lehman College's Federal Title IV code is 007022.
After the FAFSA has been processed, a Student Aid Report (SAR), which produces an Expected Family Contribution (EFC), is electronically submitted to the Financial Aid Office. The amount of the applicant's award is based on the Expected Family Contribution, enrollment status, and the cost of education. Recipients must be enrolled as a first-degree matriculated undergraduate student. Students selected for verification must provide the Financial Aid Office with certain documents to verify the accuracy of the information reported.
Pell Grant awards are paid to eligible students for a maximum of 150 percent of the 128 credits required for the student's first bachelor's degree as long as satisfactory program progress and pursuit is maintained. For more information, visit www.lehman.edu/financial-aid.
