About the New Pell Grant Legislation
The new Pell grant legislation states that each student must fill out a FAFSA form, the results are sent to the student's school, and the school decides how much the student is eligible for based on need.

Hi, my name is Brooke Kramer and I'm the Financial Aid Officer with Argosy University in Salt Lake City, and today we're going to talk about new Pell grant legislation. Now, for the 08/09 academic school year, there are some requirements in order for a student to receive Pell grant. The very first thing a student must complete is the 08/09 free application for federal student aid. You can find this at www.fafsa.ed.gov. Once you complete this application, a results are sent to your school, and they will be able to tell you what you qualify for in Pell grant funds. They use this, based on the results from your free application for federal student aid, and it's going to vary how much you receive, depending on how many credit hours per semester you are taking. Also what your expected family contribution is from your FAFSA, as well as what your need is. If you have additional questions regarding Pell grant, you can visit our website at www.argosy.edu.
