How to Show Proof of Your Pell Grant Award for ACP
For Federal Pell Grants, documents should be from the current award year and can include:
- Screenshots of the dashboard which you can access at StudentAid.gov/login that clearly documents the student’s receipt of a Pell Grant during the current award year,
- Written confirmation from a student’s institution of higher education or the Department of Education that the student has received a Pell Grant for the current award year,
- A student’s official financial aid award letter documenting the amount of a student’s Pell Grant award received for the current award year, or
- A copy of a student’s paid invoice that clearly documents the student’s receipt of a Pell Grant
Where do you show this proof?
You will upload this proof when you get to the National Verifier application portion. If you skip this step you will NOT be able to claim your "free internet for students" and additional benfits as a Pell Grant recipient.
