Summer Financial Aid

The following groups of students may be eligible for summer financial aid:

  • Graduate Students taking 6 credits or more

  • Undergraduate students who are graduating at the end of the summer session or the following December

  • All undergraduate students taking 6 credits or more that want Parent PLUS Loans only

If you fall into one of these categories you must follow the following steps:

  • Complete the FAFSA form for the upcoming year. For example, if you are interested in receiving aid for summer 2019, you would need to complete the 2019-2020 FAFSA form.

  • Complete any necessary verification and provide all information requested for the upcoming year.

  • Stop by the Financial Aid Office (or call if you are out of the area) and ask for the application for summer financial aid. This packet of information is typically only available after the start of summer registration.

  • Return the completed application for summer financial aid to our office. You will need to schedule an appointment with a financial aid counselor at that time. Please keep in mind that you must be able to register for all of your summer courses, regardless of what session they are offered, the day of your financial aid appointment. If you require advisor approval to register for the courses, please gain that approval and make sure your advisor has unlocked your registration in PAWS before coming to the office.
All summer financial aid is tentative. Any aid awarded can only be kept if you meet Satisfactory Academic Progress (SAP) at the end of the current spring semester. Summer aid is also contingent based on your completion of your summer courses. If you withdraw from any summer courses after receiving aid, then your financial aid will be reduced or cancelled, resulting in an outstanding bill with the University Billing Office. Additionally, summer funding is dependent on any pending congressional legislation.
