If eligible for aid and awarded, you will receive a message to check CLASS-Web for your financial aid offer.

Most students will have to “ACCEPT” their offer online prior to any funds being disbursed.

Lifetime Pell Eligibility Acknowledgement

Pell Lifetime Eligibility Used (LEU)Effective July 1, 2012, students are limited to a lifetime maximum Pell Grant of 12 full time semesters / six years (600%) at any community college, vocational school or four year/bachelor program. Once you reach the 600% Pell LEU, you are ineligible for any additional Pell Grant. Log onto My Federal Student Aid (formerly NSLDS) using your FSA ID and view your LEU, found on the Financial Aid Review page. For more information: Federal Pell Grant

What this means for you: You must plan now for your future, especially if you plan to transfer to a four-year college for a Bachelor’s degree. The six-year limit is a lifetime limit, regardless of completion of your academic goals or Bachelor’s degree. This regulation is in effect even if you have had an appeal approved for failure to meet academic progress, it supersedes any prior offer of aid/award, and the Department of Education allows for no appeal or exception.

Unusual Enrollment History (UEH) Notification

If you received the Federal Pell Grant at multiple institutions in recent academic years
(2015-16, 2016-17, 2017-18, 2018-19), your 2019-20 FAFSA was flagged for unusual enrollment history (UEH) by the U.S. Department of Education.

All students with a UEH flag will be required to provide Chabot College with official academic transcripts from all colleges and universities attended during the review period, 
as reported on NSLDS (National Student Loan Data System)
