pell grant

One issue you may run into with this plan is the academic year isn't set by the college you attend. The federal government sets the academic year. July isn't going to be in the same academic year as September courses.

There are definitely dates to use grant money by. If they're not used by the specific date the federal government has issued, then you lose the money. The academic year that the feds set is what Pell goes by. Read up on the feds website. This will override anything someone at a college tells you. The financial award is for a specific time period and it will say so on your paperwork/electronic document. And you definitely need a new FAFSA every year. We're coming up to the end of the 2019-2020 academic year. Hope you filled out your 2020-2021 FAFSA.

Thats what I am saying. The fafsa I been award is for 2020-2021 and I do plan on using for the dates I been given honestly i do not know what you re trying to prove here. I have award dates for July and October 2020 and JANUARY 2021 that I will use on time for my schedule that has been set by the school and the federal government that is not changing.

I'm not trying to prove anything. You never said you had award letters for specific dates. July and October would be 2 different academic years for FAFSA. I have financial aid staff tell me things that weren't true. I only found out after the fact once I went to register for my courses and I had to come up the payment. Not fun!
