Academic Impacts on Pell Grant

The Department of Education requires institutions to verify that credits used to determine the Pell grant award amount must exclude credits for a failed class if we cannot verify that the student actually earned the failing grade. The student is deemed to have earned the 0.0 grade if he or she attended the class at least one day after the census date (end of refund period) of the class. Students who never attended or whose last date of attendance was before the census date are considered to have an unearned 0.0 and Pell disbursements are adjusted based upon the new (earned) credits.
