Northeast offers sessions every Wednesday at 1:00 p.m. in the Student Center (SC 111) to assist students with applying for financial aid. Although year round Pell Grants are a thing of the past, many students can still get a grant for the summer by filing out the 2011-2012 FAFSA (Free Application for Student Aid) using 2010 tax information. May 2012 graduates are eligible as well as those students who have not exhausted their Pell Grant award for the 2011-2012 year.
For the fall 2012 semester, students need to apply for the 2012-2013 year by using 2011 tax information. There have been many changes to the Pell Grants, but the annual maximum award has remained at $5550.00. In regard to changes, Director Willmon had this warning, “When filling out the FAFSAs, students should always use the IRS Data Retrieval Tool when prompted. This will speed up the process of verifying the tax data. This tool is also a convenience for students in entering tax information and saves them from waiting for up to six weeks for an IRS Tax Transcript.”
