Will pell grant pay for post-Associate degrees?

We know that pell-grant does not help you pay through college after you receive your first bachelor's degree, but what about Associates? Can you get up to 3 Associates degree all with the support of Pell Grant, or can you only take 1 Associate degree and that's it?

Will pell grant pay for post-Associate degrees?

Hi! From a former Pell Grant recipient, who had it through community college and undergrad, I can tell you easily. They will pay for anything that is not equivalent to the same degree you already have. So if you already have an A.S., they won't pay for more degrees at the Associate Level. If you want to get your B.A/B.S., they'll help out with that. That being said, why would you want three Associate's degrees, wouldn't you rather just grab your B.A./B.S. and transfer the credits over from your A.S? It would be quicker since you'd only need two years, but that's just my opinion
