The amount of Federal Pell Grant funds a student may receive over his or her lifetime is limited by a new Federal Law to be the equivalent of six years of Pell Grant funding. Since the maximum amount of Pell Grant funding a student can receive each year is equal to 100%, the six-year equivalent is 600%.

The National Student Loan Data System (NSLDS) holds a record of the percentage receive by each student and will be updated in mid-July 2012.* Ocean County College will notify any student affected by the lifetime eligibility criteria in writing as soon as this information has been updated.
Until updated, information contained on NSLDS may not be accuarate.

Please visit Student Aid on The Web for more information regarding the lifetime eligibility criteria.
