Hi, my name is Brooke Kramer, and I am a Financial Aid Officer, with Argosy University, in Salt Lake City, and today, we're going to talk about what disqualifies you from the Pell Grant. There are a number of things that may disqualify you from receiving a Pell. The first thing, is that you must be a first year student, going towards their undergraduate degree, in order to receive the Pell. Also, you must be eligible for federal aid, and what determines what you're eligible for federal aid, is by the student completing the free application for federal student aid. You can find this at www.fafsa.ed.gov. Some of the qualifications in order to qualify for federal aid, would be that you are an eligible citizen, or you are an eligible non-citizen. You also must be attending a accredited university, that has received approval for Title IV funds. If you are unsure if your school does qualify for these, you can ask them, and they will be able to tell you if they receive federal funding.
