Financial Aid for Summer Sessions

If you are interested in taking courses over the summer, here are a few points to keep in mind related to your Financial Aid eligibility:

  • Summer begins the financial aid award year.
  • Direct Loans require half-time attendance. 
  • Pell Grants are available to less than half-time enrollment for those who qualify.
  • Loans and Pell Grants received for the Summer session reduce the amount that is available for the Fall and Spring Semesters.  Students are cautioned to plan accordingly.
  • Students may work on campus 40 hours per weeks during the Summer session.
