How Eligibility is Determined
After your application is processed and the information is received by Florida Keys Community College, the college
determines your aid eligibility based on your expected family contribution (EFC). If you apply for aid simultaneously at
several colleges, your EFC should remain the same at each institution.
Students holding an earned bachelor’s degree from a U.S. college or university are not eligible for federal grant money, but
may be eligible for other federal and private aid.
Student’s who transfer to FKCC from another institution must submit their official transfer work to Enrollment Services
for processing. Transfer work must be evaluated to determine if the student is meeting basic federal requirements of
Satisfactory Academic Progress and maximum time frame. It is the students responsibility to ensure that all necessary
documents are submitted in a timely fashion so that sufficient time for processing is allowed.
Reimbursement of Charges
Students that are deemed eligible after the normal registration period and have paid for their classes using some other
means will be reimbursed for their educational expenses up to the amount of the award, four weeks after the beginning of

Federal Pell Grant
The Federal Pell Grant is a need-based federal grant for students seeking their first undergraduate degree. Financial need
is determined by the estimated family contribution (EFC) from the student’s processed FAFSA (Free Application for Federal
Student Aid). The annual award amount is determined by the EFC and enrollment status and award amounts range based
on enrollment hours. Students may receive funding only for courses that are required for the program(s) of study and
a maximum of 30 credit hours of required college-preparatory coursework. Students must be enrolled in a degree or
certificate program. The final Pell Grant Award will be determined by the number of hours attended 3 weeks into the term.
The student will then owe Florida Keys Community College for the dropped course(s) and any lab fees or book charges not
covered by the adjusted Pell award.
All Pell students are advised to speak with a financial aid staff person prior to
dropping and/or withdrawing from a course.
