Do you have to pay back the pell grant if you fail or drop a class?
I am traditionally an A and B level student in college. But I am really struggling with the online schedule due to covid.
If I choose to drop a class. Or end up failing a class do I need to repay the government for the pell grant I received?
I have never even come close to failing before so I am very stressed about all this.

@RR - A Pell Grant is a form of financial aid. Financial aid includes grants, scholarships, and loans.
If you drop below full-time credit hours, then you may need to repay a portion of the grant. Your school's financial aid office can let you know how you might be affected by dropping or failing a course.

I do not think you need to pay back pell grant, but you may have to pay back financial aid since it is based on the number of credits you are taking.
