Summer Financial Aid 2014

Summer Sessions I & II

The Financial Aid Office will be determining aid for students based on eligibility and enrollment status for the summer term. This will be determined by the unmet need and remaining amount of unused Pell Grant and/or Loans from the previous fall 2013 and/or spring 2014 terms.

In order to qualify for summer 2014 financial aid students must meet the following:

  1. Have a completed 2013-2014 financial aid file
  2. Be enrolled in an eligible degree or certificate program
  3. Maintaining Satisfactory Academic Progress at the end of the spring term
  4. Have not utilized maximum financial aid eligibility for the 2013-2014 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.)

Registration for summer courses begins April 7, 2014. 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.
