Hi, my name is Brooke Kramer, and I am the Financial Aid Officer with Argosy University in Salt Lake, City, and today we're going to talk about the financial aid eligibility in order to qualify for the Federal Pell Grant. Now, the Pell grant is based on need, and the way the government determines what your financial aid need is is by you completing the free application for federal student aid. You can find this at www.fafsa.ed.gov. You will need your prior year's tax form in order to complete this. Now, using this information provided on your FAFSA, the institute you plan on attending will be able to tell you what you qualify for in Pell. And we use the results from your FAFSA in order to determine what you qualify for. What else will determine this is how many credits you are taking each semester, and also what grade level you are currently in.
