PROVO, Utah (AP) - Officials at two Utah universities say federal cuts of the Pell grant program mean fewer students are registering for summer school.

Utah Valley University associate vice president Michelle Taylor says low-income students who previously received the grants for three semesters can now only access them for two.

She tells the Daily Herald most students are saving the grant for traditional spring and fall semesters.

Officials at Brigham Young University say they also expect to see lower numbers when final enrollment counts come out.

More than 20,000 students at UVU and BYU are enrolled in summer classes. Both schools have been trying to boost summer enrollments by offering perks, including discounted tuition.
