For those of you who want to gripe about the Pell grants consider this, as of this year you are only allowed to receive Pell Grants for two semesters per year and only 12 semesters total. That is equal to 6 years, Black River is only allowed to pay out Pell for people with less than 92 attempted credit hours or 30 classes (most classes are 3 credit hours). I attended college with what I call a 'career' college student, she had been in college for a very long time racking up several degrees. I believe the new Pell law is in place to curb people like this. I am a single parent of an 11 year old boy, I receive the Pell grant to help me with my expenses while I am in college. However I do not think that Pell is intended to pay for your rent, a new car every 6 months, or for shopping sprees of new cloths, hair, nails, etc. This being said I will gladly accept my Pell check and continue with my last year of college so I can graduate and give my son a decent home.

Taxpayers are not happy you are getting free money. If you want an education stop getting tattoos, body pins, smoking, drinking, eating out and many of the things you could do without if you really wanted education instead of free loading.

No problem with that. It's the abusers that get taxpayers upset.

Everbody is not born with a gold spoon but many put a shovel in their hands and WORK for any education instead of freeloading on us taxpayers who already have to pay back money to China to pay for these programs.

Starting this year there are now lifetime limits to the pell grant program. You are only allowed to get a pell for 12 semesters. Also they are wanting to make it where you have to carry at least 15 hours a semester to qualify for fed aid.
