TIPS FOR DETERMINING SUMMER FINANCIAL AID ELIGIBILITY:

1- Summer tuition for most classes is higher and financial aid awards may not cover your full balance. Remember, you will have other costs such as books, fees and supplies.

2- If you were full time in both fall and spring, you should NOT be eligible for any grants.

3- If you received the yearly maximum loan limits, you will NOT be eligible for any student loans. If you are eligible for loans you will need to be enrolled in at least 6 credits during summer.

Yearly loan limits are stated below:

a. Dependent students – $5500-Freshman, $6500-Sophmore

b. Independent students- $9500-Freshman, $10500-Sophmore
