A student may gain eligibility for AZP or PPG if the completed review results in a change to their EFC during their first year at the University of Arizona. In subsequent years, a student may switch between AZP and PPG either if their EFC changes based on that year’s FAFSA or if completed verification or FC appeal reviews for that year results in a change to their EFC.
In her first year enrolled at Arizona, student A has an EFC of 100 as calculated by the FAFSA and is awarded PPG.
Student A is flagged for verification that year. After OSFA completes the verification review, the student’s EFC changes to 0 as calculated by the FAFSA.
Student A is now eligible for AZP with the 0 EFC. Her PPG award is canceled and the AZP award is given for the academic year.
In his first year enrolled at Arizona, student B has an EFC of 0 as calculated by the FAFSA and is awarded AZP.
In his sophomore year enrolled at the University, his EFC, as determined by the FAFSA, is 450.
Student B is no longer eligible for AZP because he no longer has a 0 EFC but because he received AZP in year one and has a Pell eligible EFC in his sophomore year, he is given the PPG award for his second year.
In her first year enrolled at Arizona, student C has an EFC of 7000 as calculated by the FAFSA. Since this is not a Pell eligible EFC, student C is not awarded AZP or PPG but is considered for other institutional need based grants including the University Grant.
In her sophomore year, Student C has an EFC of 0 as calculated by the FAFSA.
Student C is not awarded AZP for her sophomore year because she did not have either AZP or PPG in her first year. She is awarded the Federal Pell Grant since she is now Pell Grant eligible and is considered for other institutional need based grants including the University Grant.
