Pell2 Item Type Reduced to 100% of the Yearly Eligibility with Validation Message 9256 When Attempting to Award More Than the 100% Amount (Doc ID 2771818.1)

Last updated on APRIL 27, 2021

Applies to:

PeopleSoft Enterprise CS Financial Aid - Version 9.2 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.


When attempting to award all of the student's Pell eligibility using one Pell2 item type - in the scenario where the student is in fact eligible for more than 100% Pell in the aid year - the system reduces the item type to the 100% amount with edit message 9256:

The expectation is that the system should allow the full amount, as the student is eligible, and the institution isn't awarding in the forward year or in any crossover term(s). 

In one such example, this issue was seen awarding in one term representing a student's "clock hour" program for the aid year. 

The issue can be reproduced at will with the following steps:

  1. Navigate to Financial Aid > Awards > Award Processing > Assign Awards to a Student > Student Aid Package. 
  2. Offer/accept (action 'B') Pell2 item type, entering amount totaling Pell1+Pell2 eligibility, and the appropriate disbursement plan and split code. 
  3. Click Validate button.
