You are auditing Pell grant provided to students at six state universities. The Pell grant program is a federal financial aid program for college students. The maximum grant a student can receive during a school year is $3,125 with a maximum of $1,041.67 per semester and summer session. The amount of a grant depends on financial need and the number of credits taken (status). Students cannot receive a grant at two different schools during the same school term.

SSN: Social security number

Last: Students last name

First: Students first name

Middle: Students middle name or initial

School: School- Coded 1 to 6

Term: Coded 1 to 3

1- Fall semester

2- Spring semester

3- Summer semester

*Need: Financial need - coded 1 to 5

1- 100% of allowable grant

2- 75%

3- 50%

4- 25%

5- 0%

*Status: Credit taken - Coded 1 to 4

1-12 or more credits: 100%

2-9 to 11 credits 75%

3-6 to 8 credits 50%

4-3 to 5 credits 25%

Amount: Amount of grant for the term

Computation of grant $3,125/3 * Need * Status

For a full time student with maximum need:

$3,125 / 3 * 100% * 100% = $1,041.67

For a student with a code 3 need taking 9 credits

$3,125 / 3 * 50% * 75% = $390.63
