New Federal Rule Limits Aid for
Transfer Students

Federal regulations regarding students' enrollment history have been released for the 2013-2014 academic year. Students who have attended more than one institution while receiving a Federal Pell Grant may be asked for further documentation. If you are selected, you will be notified by email as well as via the MyISU Portal.


All students who are flagged will be required to provide to academic transcripts or grade reports from all colleges and universities attended during the review period. If Pell Grants were received and academic credit was not earned at each institution attended during these award years, the student may be determined ineligible for further federal financial aid. The Office of Student Financial Aid has the authority to require an official academic transcript from any/all colleges attended during the review period.
