Federal Pell Grant Program
The Pell Grant is given with no repayment expected. This program is designed to provide a “floor” upon which other financial aid programs are built. Any student wishing to receive a Federal Pell Grant at this institution must meet the eligibility requirements established by the U.S. Department of Education.
To receive a Federal Pell Grant a student must complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). The FAFSA may be completed on-line at studentaid.gov . The school code is 012967, Mid-East CTC - Adult Education.
After the FAFSA has been processed by the Dept. of Education, a Student Aid Report (SAR) will be issued. This report will contain a number referred to as the EFC (Effective Family Contribution). The school uses this number to determine the amount of the student's award as set forth by the U.S. Dept. of Education.
NOTE: Full awards are made only if the student is attending a program of at least 900 clock hours. A student entering a program of less than 900 hours will receive a prorated reduced award. We are considered a 1st year school even if you have attended other schools.

NOTE: Federal student loans will not be certified until a student's FAFSA information has been received and the student’s financial aid file is complete. This is LOAN MONEY AND MUST BE PAID BACK!
Factors in Amount a Student may borrow:
- Student dependency status: Dependent verses Independent will be a factor in the amount of loan money a student may borrow.
- Program Length: Programs that are less than 900 hours will receive a prorated down payment based on the number of hours in the designated program.
- EFC--Estimated Family Contribution: This may determine which loan you may be able to get.
- Current Loan Amounts and Types: If you have been to college before, this may be a determing factor in amount and type of loan you may be able to get.
