Summer Financial Aid

Financial aid is available to assist students taking classes over the summer.

Summer aid eligibility will be evaluated based on actual summer enrollment for 2024. We will begin reviewing enrollment and evaluating eligibility during the early registration period. (There is no separate application for summer aid.) Most financial aid requires a minimum of 6 credit hours of enrollment for eligibility. During the summer, those hours can either be divided into 3 credit hours per session or 6 credit hours in one session.  

It is important to note that May 29th is the last day to add classes for ALL summer sessions to be considered for financial aid eligibility. If you have not filed your 2023-2024 FAFSA, there is still time to complete an application at
