The Office of Financial Aid is responsible for administering financial aid for all terms in the academic year. The amount of aid you can receive during Summer Session is determined by the number of credits you enroll in and your aid eligibility.
Summer aid is typically limited to your remaining eligibility from the previous academic year for Direct Subsidized and Unsubsidized loans and the Federal Pell Grant. Direct PLUS loans and work-study may also be available. To find out how much summer financial aid you are eligible to receive, complete the Summer Financial Aid Application in MyCUInfo beginning in late February.
Students receiving aid are expected to be familiar with all financial aid policies, such as the Adjustments to Financial Aid policy, Satisfactory Academic Progress (SAP) Policy, Students Rights and Responsibilities, and more.
Financial aid, with the exception of work-study, will be applied directly to the student’s tuition and fee bill, and any funds exceeding the bill will be refunded to the student’s bank account by direct deposit approximately three days before classes begin.
The 2017 Financial Aid refund dates will be available in January 2017. Visit the Bursar’s website for the most up-to-date information.
In addition to financial aid, students have the option of student employment to help finance their education. Visit the Student Employment website to learn more about finding a job, employment procedures, pay ranges, and off-campus employment opportunities.
Certain student groups may have limited financial aid opportunities.
Nondegree students typically are not eligible for financial aid. However, if you are taking preparatory courses for an undergraduate program, federal loans may be available on a limited basis. For more information, schedule an appointment for Financial Aid Counseling through Continuing Education.
Additionally, nondegree students can apply for the Nontraditional Student Scholarship through Continuing Education.
