Financial Aid

Scholarships and University grants are generally available only during the academic year. Federal and State Grants, including the Federal Pell Grant, are awarded to students demonstrating substantial financial eligibility based on information submitted on the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) and the Federal Pell Grant Formula. A student may be eligible for a Federal PelI Grant for the summer term if the student did not receive all of his/her annual limit during the prior academic year or will not receive the annual limit for the coming academic year due to attendance for only one semester. Other federal and state grants are generally not available for summer enrollment.

Federal Student Loans

A student may be eligible to borrow the Federal Stafford Loan for the summer term if the student did not borrow all of his/her annual loan limit during the prior academic year
