Summary:

The current budget compromise would eliminate the ability for students to get a second grant during the same year. Last year, more than 800,000 Pell recipients took out "a second grant to pay for courses between academic semesters, usually during the summer." This will hit nontraditional students at private-sector colleges particularly hard because they want to complete their programs and enter the workforce as quickly as possible.
