Summer Awards

Summer Federal 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.

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 2021-2022 FAFSA and the Summer Financial Aid Application.
