Summer Financial Aid 2019 Summer Sessions I & II

The Financial Aid Office will be reviewing student eligibility based on 2018-2019 FAFSA and enrollment status for the summer term. This will be determined by the unmet need and remaining amount of Pell Grant and/or Loans from the previous fall 2018 and/or spring 2019 terms.

In order to qualify for summer 2019 financial aid students must meet the following:

  1. Have a completed 2018-2019 financial aid file and a 2019-2020 FAFSA on file
  2. Be enrolled in an eligible degree or certificate program
  3. Maintaining Satisfactory Academic Progress at the end of the spring term
    1. Financial Aid accepts Satisfactory Academic Progress appeals for the fall and spring semester(s) only.
  4. Have not utilized maximum financial aid eligibility for the 2018-2019 award year (Pell and Direct Loans)
  5. Be enrolled in at least 6 credits for most financial aid programs (Pell may be an exception based on your EFC. You may be eligible even if registered less than ½ time if you are a part-time student during fall and/or spring.)

Registration for summer courses begins April 1, 2019. The Financial Aid Office recommends that you register for both sessions (Summer I and Summer II) at the same time in order to ensure an accurate financial aid award.

Students who were full time during fall and spring will not be eligible for any summer Pell grant if they take only one course, or are enrolled less than half time.
