Regent University participates in the Federal Pell Grant Program for undergraduate students.
To be considered for eligibility:
Typically, Pell grant disburses in two equal parts per academic year (fall and spring semesters). Although disbursed at the beginning of a semester, students must earn their Pell by completing and participating in registered courses.
The Department of Education (ED) determines Pell grant awards on a sliding scale based on the combination of two factors:
# of Credits Per Semester
|Full Time||12+ credits|
|3/4 Time||9-11 credits|
|1/2 Time||6-8 credits|
|Less than 1/2 Time||0-5 credits|
Note: Students enrolled in the 8-week online or on-campus program have the ability to register in each of two sessions per semester. If you recieve Pell grant or other federal financial aid and enroll in the 8-week program, it is recommended that you enroll for both semester sessions before the semester begins to ensure that you maximize your federal aid eligibility.
