Federal Funds

Pell Grant: If eligible, you may receive a prorated amount based on your enrollment.

Federal Student Loans: If you are enrolled in 6+ credit hours for the summer, you may utilize Federal Direct Subsidized or Unsubsidized Loans, if eligible. There is an annual limit as to how much you may borrow, so loan funds used in the summer will reduce amounts available in the fall/spring semesters.

Federal Direct Parent PLUS Loan: Parents of dependent students can apply for a  Federal Direct Parent PLUS Loan to assist with costs associated with summer, as long as the student is enrolled in 6+ credit hours. The Parent PLUS Loan application is anticipated to become available May 2020.

Undergraduate students must be enrolled in a minimum of 6 credit hours in order to be eligible for federal loans. Enrollment does not have to be in one term but can be spread out amongst the various summer terms (e.g., Summer I and Summer II). There are consequences for dropping or withdrawing for summer courses, so students with questions about how changing enrollment during summer will affect their aid should contact our office.

Federal Work-Study: Contracted work-study students may work beginning July 1 if they are enrolled at least half-time during the summer OR are enrolled at least half-time during the fall semester.

Alternative Loans

Alternative loan funds are available for summer, but we urge you to research all possibilities for scholarships, grants, work-study and federal loans before borrowing from an alternative loan program.
