When validating a student's Pell item type that has been made for a total amount equal to the remaining Lifetime Eligibility Used (LEU), where the student's current LEU is between 500 and 600, the system cancels the last term amount with one of the following Validation Edits:

9239: "Pell award has been reduced to student's Lifetime Eligibility Used percent value greater than 500 percent but less than lifetime eligibility maximum percent." This one is seen more commonly when the student has more than one term award, ie fall and spring and the system is cancelling spring.

9254: "Student has not been awarded Pell grant because their cumulative load exceeds 100%. Use an Additional Pell grant to award.". This one is seen more commonly when the student is due to be awarded in only one term. A review of the Aggregate record, prior to the item type being cancelled, shows the Total Percent Used value set to 100 (even though it's actually less than that), so that may be the reason.

The correct total amount should be maintained or allowed to be awarded

The issue can be reproduced at will with the following steps:
1. On Update Incoming Aggregates component for the PELL aggregate and aid year, set the LEU to an applicable value, e.g. 529
2. Validate existing or new Pell item type

The issue does not occur except for students bumping up against the LEU maximum of 600
