Congress has been dealing with many issues in Washington of which I am sure you have been aware. Balancing the budget has federal student aid taking possible cuts. I have learned the Pell Grant for the 11-12 year should stay at the level of last year, however, the Year-Round Pell will be eliminated. I do not know how the other programs may be affected at this time.
With Year-Round Pell being eliminated, this will affect the summer school students, however, I do not know how it will affect the students until Congress has its final vote and I have guidance from the Dept of Education on the summer cross-over from 10-11 to 11-12 years. Unfortunately, there are other federal student aid programs with possible cuts as well; I will keep you posted as answers arrive.
