Dual Credit Pell Guidelines
Dual Credit Pell at Northeastern Technical College

The U.S. Department of Education has selected Northeastern Technical College (NETC) to participate in an experimental program that allows students enrolled in dual credit classes to receive Pell Grants.  The Pell Grant program provides monetary assistance to students demonstrating financial need.  The maximum award for which you could qualify, depending on financial need as determined by the FAFSA and hours enrolled, is $6195 for the 2019-20 academic year ($6345 for the 2020-21 year).  To apply for Pell, families must complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) using 2018 year income.

 When to Apply for Financial Aid?

The federal financial aid application dates saw a major shift starting with 2019-20. Students can begin filing the FAFSA on Oct 1st of each year and will report income from two years prior.

Calculating Your Award Amount

Pell Grant is a federal program for undergraduate students.  The data you provide on your Free Application for Federal Student aid (FAFSA) is used in determining your Pell Grant eligibility.  If you have a change in circumstances such as a loss of job or income that impacts your ability to pay, contact our office to discuss Special Conditions.


Part-Time Adjustments

The Pell award is adjusted for part-time enrollment as outline below: 

12 or more hours

Full time

9 – 11 credit hours

¾ time

6 – 8 credit hours

½ time

5  or less credit hours

¼ time

Summer Eligibility

Students who are full time fall and spring semesters can participate in the Year-Round Pell for the summer term if attending at least ½ time (6 credit hours).  Students attending part-time fall or spring can use their remaining Pell entitlement over the summer term and can possibly participate in the Year-Round Pell as well.  Contact the Financial Aid Office for more information.


Payment of Financial Aid Disbursement

The Business Office will automatically deduct incurred cost (tuition, fees, and books) out of the Pell Grant award. Students will be notified when checks are ready for disbursement and can pick up their refund check from the Cashier’s Office.  Any check not picked up within three weeks of issuance will be mailed to the student.


Getting Your Books

If your Pell Grant award exceeds the cost of tuition and fees, the excess will be available at the Bookstore.  This amount can be used towards the purchase of books.  


Satisfactory Academic Progress (SAP)

Students are expected to maintain a 2.0 grade point average (C average) in college courses and complete 67% of all credit hours attempted in order to receive future financial aid.  The complete SAP policy is provided on NETC’s website under Financial Aid - Satisfactory Academic Progress.


Participating High Schools

To participate in Dual Credit Pell, students must be enrolled at a participating high school in Chesterfield, Marlboro, and Dillon County.  Private schools and homeschooled students are not eligible to participate under the program.


Return of Title IV/Drop Classes Rules

Students who withdraw from all college courses prior to completing 60% of the term (first day of classes until the last day of exams) are required to repay a portion of the Pell applied toward tuition and fees under the Return of Title IV regulations.  We encourage you to contact the Office of Student Financial Assistance prior to withdrawing from class to discuss your individual situation.
