Important Summer Aid Information for Current Students:
If you are taking spring semester courses, your eligibility for summer financial aid is contingent upon the successful completion of these courses. Because of this, your application for summer aid cannot be processed until after your spring semester grades are posted. Therefore, if you are taking Spring semester courses, you will need to pay for your summer I semester course(s) by the tuition due date with your own funds.
If your summer financial aid award is based on your enrollment in both summer semesters, aid funds will not be disbursed until after the start of the summer II semester (in order to verify enrollment). Consequently, student refunds will not be issued until after the start of the summer II semester.
