Student Financial Aid Handbook, 2001-2002. Volume 3: Pell Grant Program.
Department of Education, Washington, DC. Student Financial Assistance.
This volume describes how a school calculates and pays Pell awards to eligible students and how it reports those payments to the Department of Education. The discussion covers what the school must do to process an eligible student's Pell award after the school has received documentation of the student's eligibility. The Federal Pell Grant Program provides grants to undergraduate students who have financial need and meet the other requirements for Student Financial Assistance (SFA) help. Schools do not have to make decisions about Pell awards; the Department of Education pays Pell funds to eligible students, and formulas determine how much each student receives. The volume contains these chapters: (1) "Introduction"; (2) "Student Eligibility"; (3) "Calculating the Federal Pell Grant"; (4) "Pell Reporting"; (5) "Disbursing Pell Awards"; and (6) "Recalculations and Overpayments."
