Pell Grants are awards to help undergraduate students pay for their education after high school.  For many students these Grants serve as a “foundation” of financial aid to which aid from other federal and non-federal sources may be added.  Unlike student loans, grants do not have to be paid back.

Pell Payments are electronically transferred to the school’s federal account, which are then applied to the student’s account.  Pell Grant disbursements are issued twice per academic year for every 500 hours of physical attendance, provided students are maintaining satisfactory progress according to the standards set by Michigan Barber School.
