Additional Information

Pell Grant awards are either credited to the student’s account by the school or are paid directly to the student, usually by check. A combination of these payment methods is also possible. The school must inform the student in writing how the funds will be disbursed and the school must pay at least once per term.

Pell Grants are not the only type of financial aid. Individuals should check with their financial aid officer for more information about the range of opportunities for scholastic aid. Scholarships.com offers information on scholarships for students with disabilities.
