Your Federal Pell Grant is disbursed in 2 installments each semester. The first disbursement will be equal to 25% of your total scheduled award for the semester and is scheduled to coincide as closely as possible to the start of the semester so that you have a chance to purchase books and supplies in the first week of the term. The remaining 75% of your scheduled award will be disbursed several weeks later. The amount of PELL you will receive for books and transportation depends on how much PELL is left after your tuition and fees are paid.
