Federal Pell Grant

Eligible students can receive a grant up to a maximum amount per academic year based on final appropriations set by Congress.

  • Grant amount depends on the information submitted on the FAFSA, enrollment status (full-time or part-time) and the cost of education at Macomb.
  • Pell Grant dollars must be used for educational expenses.
  • Students can only receive a Federal Pell Grant for the equivalent of two (2) full-time semesters each academic year. Students cannot receive a Federal Pell Grant at two colleges or universities during the same enrollment period.

Federal Supplemental Educational Opportunity Grant (SEOG)
