Pell Eligibility is determined for undergraduates by a student's financial need as demonstrated by the completion of the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). A student may receive the Pell grant from only one college/university per semester. Not all students who are Pell eligible end up receiving Pell aid.

"Federal Pell Grants usually are awarded only to undergraduate students who display exceptional financial need and have not earned a bachelor's, graduate, or professional degree. (In some cases, however, a student enrolled in a postbaccalaureate teacher certification program might receive a Federal Pell Grant.) You are not eligible to receive a Federal Pell Grant if you are incarcerated in a federal or state penal institution or are subject to an involuntary civil commitment upon completion of a period of incarceration for a forcible or nonforcible sexual offense. A Federal Pell Grant, unlike a loan, does not have to be repaid, except under certain circumstances."
