Pell Recalculation Policy

Pell Recalculation Dates

Pell Recalculation refers to the process in which Pell Grant students with enrollment changes during the semester may have their Pell Grant adjusted to reflect current enrollment. In addition, certain types of institutional need-based grants may also be adjusted or canceled depending on enrollment. Learn more about other types of financial aid that may be impacted on Pell Recalculation Dates.

Your Pell Recalculation Date depends on your individual enrollment. See below for dates in which your Federal Pell Grant could be recalculated.

How Enrollment Affects Your Federal Pell Grant Award

 

The University of Arizona initially offers the Federal Pell Grant to Undergraduate students assuming they will be enrolled full-time (12+ units) for both the fall and spring semesters. OSFA will automatically adjust the Federal Pell Grant for students not enrolled full-time prior to initially releasing the student's financial aid for the semester. Review the table below to see enrollment requirements for the Federal Pell Grant.

  FULL-TIME
12+ UNITS
THREE-QUARTER TIME
9-11 UNITS
HALF-TIME
6-8 UNITS
LESS THAN HALF-TIME
1-5 UNITS

Federal Pell Grant* 

100% of the scheduled award 75% of the scheduled award 50% of the scheduled award 25% of the scheduled award

*A scheduled Pell grant payment is based on the Expected Family Contribution (EFC) as calculated by the FAFSA.

*You may only be eligible for a partial award if you are close to Pell Grant Lifetime Eligibility Used (Pell  LEU).

*If you drop or withdraw from courses before beginning attendance, you are subject to the Pell Recalculation Policy and/or the Withdrawal Policy

Refunds and Financial Aid Recalculations

If you receive a refund from the University of Arizona and subsequently change your enrollment, you may be required to repay all or a portion of the refund in addition to charges incurred as a result of your change in financial aid eligibility.
