Application procedures summer 2017

You must complete a 2017 Application for Summer Financial Aid
AND 
You must file the 2017-18 FAFSA and submit all requested paperwork. 

In order to receive federal loans for summer school you must be enrolled at least half-time (6 credits for undergraduates and 5 credits for graduates). Students who are Pell Grant eligible may be eligible for a Pell Grant in the summer even if they are below half-time. 

Once your eligibility has been determined, you will receive an e-mail at your campus e-mail address, informing you that your financial aid award is available online. Follow the instructions for accepting your award. Failure to do so will result in your financial aid award being cancelled. 

Your financial aid application process must be completed prior to the last day of Summer School classes. Therefore, it is advisable to apply no later than July 23, 2017. 

Federal Direct Loans received for the Summer will reduce your 2017-18 Federal Direct Loan eligibility for the academic year. 

Summer financial aid will be disbursed on the first day of the first Summer School Session that you are registered for, if all necessary paperwork is completed. 

Less than half time for summer

If you are enrolled less than half-time and want aid for the summer session, you can apply for an alternative student loan. You must still complete the 2017 Application for Summer Financial Aid. 

The following alternative loans are available to students enrolled less than half-time: 
Wells Fargo Collegiate Loan 
Wells Fargo MedCap Loan 
(must be admitted to an approved graduate Allied Health Program) 
Sallie Mae SMART Option Loan
