Federal Pell Grants

  • Free money that does not have to be repaid.
  • Generally awarded only to undergraduate students who have not earned a bachelor's or a graduate degree and show financial need by completing the FAFSA.
  • Eligibility is limited to 12 semesters, or the equivalent (roughly six years).
  • Eligible classes must be added no later than the 'census date'. At BYU, the census date is the semester add/drop deadline.
