COVID-19 Notice | 2020–2021 Academic Year
As we prepare for the upcoming academic year, the challenges and uncertainty for delivering course content remain in this COVID-19 environment. Edison State Community College intends to provide academic courses through a variety of formats, including hybrid, remote and online. Since unanticipated circumstances at any time could affect the ability to deliver course content in a particular manner, Edison State reserves the right to modify the delivery method for course content for the health and safety of students, faculty and staff. Irrespective of the delivery format Edison State’s competitive tuition and course fee structure shall remain the same for academic courses, consistent with published Edison State tuition and fee schedules. There will be no refund or reduction on tuition or course fees, since Edison State will be providing a full semester of instruction and awarding full academic credit to those who satisfactorily fulfill course requirements.

The Federal Pell Grant provides need-based grants to undergraduate students who demonstrate the highest levels of financial need as determined by the Department of Education calculations based on the information provided on the completed FAFSA. The awarded amount is dependent upon financial need, cost of attendance, enrollment status, and whether the student plans to attend school for a full academic year or less. The Federal Pell Grant, unlike a loan, does not need to be repaid, except under certain circumstances. Students may not receive Federal Pell Grant funds from more than one school at a time.
Students may find an estimate of their Federal Pell eligibility on the Pell Awarding Chart. In order to find this estimate the student will need to know their Expected Family Contribution (EFC from FAFSA) and the number of credit hours they plan to take in the semester. Please keep in mind that the Pell Chart is only an estimation of funds. Several other factors may contribute to a student's eligibility including, but not limited to, withdrawal or failure to attend classes, completion of the first academic year, and failure to meet satisfactory academic progress.
To determine your eligibility for this grant, you must first submit the
Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). Once you've done that you'll work with a financial aid advisor to find out how much you qualify for and when you'll receive it.
A student's eligibility is based on the number of credit hours for which they are registered on the Pell Lock-In date for a particular semester. Please refer to the information below regarding the current Pell Lock-In dates. For more information about the Federal Pell Grant, click here.
NEW! The Department of Education has approved Year Round Pell, which means some students may be eligible for an additional semester of Pell Grant funds up to 150% of their scheduled annual Pell Grant award. To be eligible for the Additional Pell Grant with the Year Round Pell opportunity, students MUST be enrolled at least half-time (6 credit hours) in the term they wish to receive additional Pell Grant funds.
The Pell Lock-In date is the day on which we determine the number of credit hours you are registered for in that particular semester. This number will be used to determine your Pell Grant eligibility. Changes made to your schedule or failure to attend classes may decrease your eligibility.
It is important because changes to your schedule or failure to attend classes may decrease your eligibility and you may have to repay a portion or all of the grant funds you were initially awarded.
It is important that you consult a financial aid advisor before you choose to drop or withdraw from a course or if a Late Start class is dropped, withdrawn from or canceled after the Pell Lock-In date.
Semester aid posted to the student's account that is in excess of on-campus charges will generally be mailed to the student within 14 days of the Pell Lock-In date. Click below to view Pell Lock-In dates for the 2019-2020 Financial Aid year.
