Award Year: 2024-25 KA-36591 Helpfulness Rating 179 page views

This guidance is specific to the 2024-25 award year and later.

We don't think so, but we don't know yet. The U.S. Department of Education (ED) is still exploring whether schools will have to calculate the cost of attendance (COA) on a per-credit-hour or per-clock-hour basis (rather than by full-time, three-quarter-time, half-time, and less-than-half-time status) when enrollment intensity is being used to calculate a Federal Pell Grant.

As soon as we have an answer, we will update this Q&A.
