The FAFSA is available Oct 1st each year and PA State Grant application typically becomes available in late March.
If you wish to apply for a Federal Direct (i.e. student) loan for summer study, you must be enrolled in at least 6 credits during the summer, and complete a Federal Direct Loan Master Promissory Note and Entrance Counseling (available on the Web at studentaid.gov if you have not previously done so. You must also have remaining loan eligibility for 2020-21 (depending upon what was used during the fall and/or spring semesters).
