Upon registration for summer semester, students who have already completed a 2015-2016 FAFSA will have their grant eligibility determined by the Financial Aid Office. The amount of eligibility will be based upon the amount of unmet need and remaining amount of unused Pell Grant from the Fall 2015 and Spring 2016 semesters.
In order to qualify for summer 2016 financial aid students must meet the following:
a) Have a completed 2015-2016 financial aid file.
b) Be enrolled in a degree or certificate program.
c) Be enrolled in at least 6 credits for most financial aid programs (Pell may be an exception based on your EFC. Some students are eligible for Pell at less than 1/2 time enrollment.)
d) Be maintaining Satisfactory Academic Progress at the end of the Spring 2015 semester.
Registration for summer courses begins April 4, 2016. The Financial Aid Office recommends that you register for both sessions (Summer I and Summer II) at the same time in order to ensure an accurate financial aid award.
Students enrolled full time for both Fall 2015 and Spring 2016 (12 or more credits each term) will be ineligible for summer Pell. Students registered for fewer credits than full time for either fall, spring or both terms may have some remaining eligibility for Summer 2016. Pell grant eligibility for Summer will be posted on WebConnect after registration.
Federal Direct Student Loans
Direct loans are available based on dependency status and grade level. Students must be enrolled at least half time (6 credits.) Students who have already borrowed the maximum loan amounts for the Fall and Spring semesters will not have any remaining loan eligibility for the summer term. Students who meet the eligibility criteria and wish to borrow a loan for Summer must complete a Request for Summer Loan form and submit it to the Financial Aid Office.
Summer Work Study
The College will have limited funding and limited positions available for Work Study during Summer 2016.
College Assistance Grants/Supplemental Educational Opportunity Grants
A limited amount of funding is available for Summer in the CAG and SEOG programs. The Financial Aid Office will prioritize this funding for students who register early and demonstrate high need.
For students whose authorized aid exceeds tuition and fee charges, bookstore authorizations will be made available. This information is viewable within iConnect. For Summer 1, these may be used beginning May 24 through June 7. For Summer 2, the available dates are July 5-July 19.
No book vouchers are available in advance of the Maymester.
