Summer Awards

Summer aid consists of federal loans and, if eligible, a Pell Grant.  Summer students must enroll for at least half-time status as defined by Federal Regulations to receive federal assistance, defined as 6 UNDERGRADUATE CREDIT HOURS for undergraduate students and 4.5 GRADUATE CREDIT HOURS for graduate students.  This is not the same as half-time status through the office of the Registrar.

Summer aid eligibility is determined by the length of the particular session(s) you attend.

Changing the session and/or number of credits you are enrolled can impact the amount of your financial aid award. Notify the Office of Scholarships & Financial Aid of any changes to your schedule.

All summer applicants seeking federal financial aid are asked to submit a FAFSA and the Summer Financial Aid Application.

To fill out the Summer Financial Aid Application:

  1. Log onto WyoRecords > Students at

  2. Click on the Registration button

  3. Click the Register for Classes link

  4. Select the Summer term and click Continue

  5. Register for at least one course

  6. Click on the Summer Financial Aid Application link next to the Submit button

  7. Complete all the requested information and click the Submit button

  8. Complete the FAFSA for the aid year (summer is apart of the same year as the spring term before it)

The application only needs to be filled out 1 time per summer term.

Summer awarding will begin in late April. The awards will then be available to view/accept in WyoWeb, under the Financial Aid Tab, Award for Aid Year.
