Summer 2019 Financial Aid

Financial Aid for summer 2019

In summer 2019, Pell Grant eligible students can receive an additional Pell award each year. If you were a Pell eligible student in fall 2018 and/or spring 2019, you may qualify for a Pell Grant for summer 2019!

Eligibility for summer Pell:

  • Valid 2018-2019 FAFSA

  • Be Pell Grant eligible

  • Enroll in summer classes

  • In most cases, there is a requirement to enroll at least half-time (2+ course units)

  • Must be making Satisfactory Academic Progress (SAP)

  • Have lifetime Pell Grant eligibility remaining:  You can check for your remaining eligibility level online by logging on to NSLDS using your FSA ID. View your Lifetime Eligibility Units (LEU) on the Financial Aid Review page.

  • If you enrolled full-time (4 course units) and received the full-time Pell grant amount for fall 2018 and spring 2019, you must enroll at least half-time (2 course units) in summer classes to receive a summer Pell Grant.

  • If you enrolled part-time fall 2018 or spring 2019, there is no minimum credit requirement to receive a summer Pell grant (unless required by your EFC). You can use the remainder of your annual Pell Grant amount during summer with no minimum credit requirement.
