New! Summer 2018 Financial Aid
Summer financial aid
may be available based on enrollment and remaining eligibility for the year. You will only need to complete the Summer 2018 Student Loan Request if you are applying for student loans for the summer term. If you are eligible, Pell Grants and other grants will be automatically awarded after you enroll for summer term.
New! Additional Pell Grant available for summer term!
Students can now receive a 2nd Pell award, called Pell 2
, up to their regular scheduled full-time term award for the 2017-18 aid year. Even if you received Pell for full-time enrollment for both fall and spring, you can still receive Pell for the summer term.
