All fields with a red asterisk (*) are required.

2. Students must be enrolled at least half-time to be eligible for federal loans.

Please note:

• If you have already used your annual financial aid eligibility in the fall and/or spring semesters, you will be notified of alternative options.

Annual Subsidized/Unsubsidized Loan Maximum

• If after the spring semester your total cumulative GPA and pace of completion do not meet the standards outlined in the Satisfactory Academic Progress Policy, you will be ineligible for financial aid for the summer term and all future terms. Should this occur, you will have the right to appeal this decision. Notification of this process is soon after the end of the spring semester.

• All students can consider using a payment plan with Student Accounts.

• To help with your planning, summer tuition rates can be found here.

• If you plan to utilize ONLY veteran benefits and no other financial aid during the summer term, you are NOT required to submit this application, but you will need to submit the Veteran Benefits Enrollment Form.
