Pell Grant Lifetime Eligibility Used (LEU)


Federal law limits the amount of federal Pell Grant funds you may receive over your lifetime to the equivalent of six years. The amount of a scheduled Pell Grant you can receive each award year is 100% so the six-year equivalent is 600%.


What does the Pell Grant "Lifetime Eligibility Used" (LEU) mean?


Six or more full-time equivalent years of federal Pell Grant is called your Lifetime Eligibility Used (LEU). Once you reach your Pell Grant LEU, you are no longer eligible for the federal Pell Grant.   

If you are ineligible for the Pell Grant because you have reached your Pell LEU, you are also ineligible for the federal Supplemental Educational Opportunity Grant (SEOG) since you must be eligible for the federal Pell Grant.
