Financial Aid (Pell Grant Lifetime Limit) Question

  1. 0 So as many of you may know they just passed new legislation that you only get 600% of Pell grant before you reach your lifetime limit. I just discovered that after I complete my LVN program my lifetime limit will be reached. With this new information I have decided to skip the BSN program and just complete my BA in Communications (I am only 3 classes away) and then applying directly to a PA program (found out you just need the Biology, Anatomy, Chem and Micro (which I have) and a BA in ANYTHING.

    The school were I am going to do my 3 classes and a Psych class (also required for the PA program) is a Cal State School and runs $4k for the semester. Since I no longer qualify for the pell grant does this mean I also no longer qualify for the Cal Grant, SUG Grant and FSEOG grant?

    Someone who already have a BA in something else but went back to complete a BSN might know the answer to this question since after a BA you no longer qualify for the pell grant anyway. Do you receive any other grants?

    You have to still fill out the FAFSA and contact the Financial Aid department at the school I am in the same boat as you but I have met my max on Grants and Loans but I can still get the Texas state grant at the school. Hope this helps...
