Application for Summer Financial Assistance

Students who wish to receive federal financial assistance for the summer session must complete the 2020-2021 FAFSA if they have not already done so.
The priority date for summer awarding is April 1. We must have a completed spring application and a completed/verified FAFSA by this date in order to ensure you have aid before summer classes begin. You may be required to pay out of pocket if you did not meet the priority date.
Undergraduate students must be enrolled in at least six (6) hours to be eligible to receive federal financial assistance. Graduate students must be enrolled in at least three (3) hours to be eligible to receive federal financial assistance. All credit hours taken during the summer session must apply toward a student's program of study.
Students submitting applications for summer financial assistance after April 16 must be prepared to pay half of their tuition and fees at registration for the summer session.
Students who enroll in Study Abroad programs and in summer school are not eligible to acquire loan refunds until ten (10) days before the summer session begins or ten (10) days before their departure for study abroad, whichever comes later. Students attending Study Abroad and summer school must submit applications for both at the same time.
Students with SOAR accounts should complete the application in SOAR by navigating the following path:
