Financial Aid

Financial Aid

Financial Aid is available for summer semester for regularly admitted, eligible students. To determine financial aid eligibility, each student must complete the 2020-21 Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA), available at For maximum consideration, the Office of Financial Aid should receive your FAFSA by January 15.

Many summer students rely on federal student loans to fund their summer studies. Students must be enrolled at least ½ time (6 credits for undergraduate students; 5 credits for graduate students) to be eligible for federal loans. All students are expected to complete the enrollment level for which their financial aid is disbursed. Consult Financial Aid before you change your enrollment once your summer aid is disbursed. Most aid is disbursed 10 days before the first day of your first summer class. However, federal Pell Grants, federal Opportunity Grants, and federal Nursing loans will not be disbursed until July 1.
