Financial aid for Summer Semester is very limited!
It is extremely important that you apply early if you plan to enroll in summer courses. The 2013 Summer Semester Financial Aid Form is available to request summer financial aid. This form is for students that are planning to attend during the summer semester and hope to receive financial aid. In order to be considered for financial aid a student must:
A student who does not utilize all of his or her Pell Grant award during Fall and Spring Semesters has funds available for use during Summer Semester. For example, a student with an annual Pell Grant award of $2400, who enrolls half-time during Fall Semester and full-time during Spring Semester, typically receives $1800 ($600 Fall + $1200 Spring) during the regular academic year. This leaves an additional $600 available for use during Summer Semester.
Other grant funds (SEOG, COMA, CSAP, PTAP) come from fixed annual allocations to the institution, and typically are very limited as we move into Summer Semester. It is possible that some of these funds will be available for use at that time, though we can provide no guarantee. Assuming that some funds do remain, it certainly will be to your advantage to return your Financial Aid Request as soon as possible.
Your award(s) will be based on the number of credits for which you register. If you decide upon a different enrollment status from the one you initially indicate, please inform the Financial Aid Office as soon as possible so that your award(s) may be revised in an expedient manner. If you do not inform us of a change in your enrollment status, your award(s) will still be adjusted accordingly at the end of the add/drop period, but additional complications could arise.
Please be reminded that all awards are contingent upon your continuing compliance with the institution's satisfactory academic progress standards. If you are not in compliance at the end of Spring Semester, your Summer Semester financial aid awards will be canceled. You will then be notified of the need to pay the balance due on your student account to ensure that your course(s) will not be dropped.
