Financial Aid

In case you were thinking about attending a SUNY Ulster express class, there has been a change in the Federal Pell Grant program called “Year-Round Pell” that may help you. This change allows eligible students to receive up to 150% of their Federal Pell Grant scheduled award beginning with the 2017–2018 award year (which includes Fall 2018).

To be eligible for the additional Pell Grant funds (over 100%), you must be otherwise eligible to receive Pell Grant funds for the payment period and must be enrolled at least half-time in classes applying to your program of study. If you are eligible for the additional Pell Grant funds, SUNY Ulster will pay up to 150 percent of your Pell Grant scheduled award for the award year. Please note that summer awards can vary based on number of credits and summer session(s) attended.

For example, here is a student who qualified for $3470 in Pell for Fall/Spring for 17-18:

  • Fall 2017 - $1735
  • Spring 2018 - $1735
  • Summer 2018 – up to $1735 more
