What does pell lifetime eligibility mean?

Postby weard46 » Tue Apr 05, 2011 8:55 am

l Lifetime Eligibility Used-(Pell Grant only) - The Lifetime Eligibility Used (LEU) is based on an
18 semester or 9 year regulation, which is calculated based on the sum of all Pell Grant %
Scheduled Award Used by Award Year for all award years, beginning with the 2008-2009 award
year. COD calculates this for students flagged as 1st Time Pell Grant recipients (1st Time: Yes),
but not for students whose first Pell Grant disbursement was prior to the 2008-2009 award year
(1st Time: No). LEU maximum has been set at 900 percent for the total of all Pell awards
received. The LEU will display as a percent value in the range between 0 percent and 900
percent. For example, if a student received all of his scheduled Pell Grant eligibility during the
2008-2009, and two consecutive Pell Awards in the 2009-2010 Award Year and three quarters
for 2010-2011, his LEU at that point in time during the 2010-2011 Award Year is 375 percent
(100% + 200% + 75% = 375%). If LEU is displayed, NSLDS displays the most recently reported
value from COD.

If you want to increase your chances make sure you apply for as many scholarships as you can rather than put all hopes on one program.

I got mine for OSU from this organization below.

Hope this helps, best of luck.
