This guidance is not award-year-specific and applies across award years.

Refer to the following resources for prison education programs (PEPs) and Title IV aid eligibility for confined or incarcerated students effective July 1, 2023:

NASFAA strongly recommends that the school review each of these resources well in advance of when the school wants to actually start offering Title IV aid to confined or incarcerated students in such programs. See AskRegs Q&A,  Is There an Application To Participate In a Prison Education Program? (Award Year: 2023-24) 

If your school currently participates in the separate Second Chance Pell Experiment, see the April 18, 2023 Federal Register outlining the steps it must take to continue to participate in that experiment. Questions about participation in the Second Change Pell Experiment should go to the school's U.S. Department of Education (ED) experiment contact.
