Financial Aid Grants

If you have been offered a Pell grant on your Financial Aid award letter, the amount offered is based on full time enrollment. The Pell grant is available at any enrollment level and it is based on your Expected Family Contribution (EFC). 

To find out what your Pell Grant would be reduced to if you enroll in less than 12 credits, follow the instructions below:

1. Locate your Expected Family Contribution (EFC) in the table below. Your EFC amount can be found on MyFIU via View My Financial Aid >Award Summary > Financial Aid Summary.
2. To determine what your Pell Grant will be reduced to for each enrollment level, follow the chart across. Your total award for the year cannot exceed the "Maximum Annual Award". 

*Please note: If you received aid at another college, or are close to the lifetime maximum limit of 600%, you may not receive the full amount of the "Term Award" and/or the "Maximum Annual Award".

The TEACH Grant Program provides grants of up to $4,000 a year to students who are completing or plan to complete course work needed to begin a career in teaching.

Due to sequestration, award amounts for any TEACH Grant that is first disbursed on or after Oct. 1, 2015, and before Oct. 1, 2016, must be reduced by 6.8 percent from the award amount for which a recipient would otherwise have been entitled. Any TEACH Grant that is first disbursed on or after Oct. 1, 2016, and before Oct. 1, 2017, must be reduced by 6.9 percent. For example:

  • For any 2016–17 TEACH Grant first disbursed on or after Oct. 1, 2015, and before Oct. 1, 2016, the maximum award of $4,000 is reduced by 6.8 percent ($272), resulting in a maximum award of $3,728.
  • For any 2016–17 TEACH Grant first disbursed on or after Oct. 1, 2016, and before Oct. 1, 2017, the maximum award of $4,000 is reduced by 6.9 percent ($276), resulting in a maximum award of $3,724.
