Pell recalculation is setting a date each term for which the enrollment status of the student will be locked for the term for purposes of determining Pell for the term. Georgia Southern establishes the Pell recalculation date as the day after the first drop/add period of each term.
Guidelines for Pell Recalculation
The enrollment status of the student is locked on the
Pell recalculation date, not the specific classes.
A student may swap courses that haven’t started yet in
the term in later modules as long as the student’s enrollment status stays the
same as it was on the recalculation date.
A student who has attended a prior term and received
Pell in the prior terms must be registered for the courses Pell will pay by the
recalculation date of the subsequent terms.
If a student is enrolling for the first time for the
award year in the later part of a term, the student’s enrollment status for
Pell is the date the student first enrolls.
If a student has attended in prior terms but never
received a Pell Grant for the award year (due to circumstances such as being
selected for verification and not completing the verification until the middle
of the term), if the student completes the verification and is then awarded a
Pell Grant, the date the student is first awarded the Pell becomes the freeze
date for the enrollment status for that student. The student would then have to be enrolled by
the next terms recalculation date to receive Pell for the next term.
