Notification of Pell Award and Pell Payment
Notification of Pell Award Status
The Financial Aid office will process a correct and complete Institutional Student Information Record (ISIR) containing federal student data in approximately two to seven days from the receipt of the report. This process will take longer in the spring and early summer if the federal government has not yet released a federal Pell Grant schedule of award amounts or if our computer supplier has not provided the college with the appropriate software. After the student's award eligibility is determined, eligible students will receive notification to view their award information on MyESC.
- Summer Pell Grant funds are paid in mid-August by the Student Accounts office.
- Fall and spring Pell Grant funds are paid approximately six weeks after the start of the academic term by the Student Accounts office.
Students receive any refund due from the Student Accounts office automatically after the government submits payment to the college.
