Scholarships and Financial Aid Information

Q. Can I apply for financial aid for the May Term?

Answer: No, financial aid is not available for the May Term. You may, however, setup an installment plan. Please refer to the Payment Information section above for more information.

Financial aid eligibility for the May term can be applied to summer if you are attending the summer terms and have remaining financial aid eligibility. However, if you attended full time for both fall and spring semesters, you may not have any additional eligibility for the May or summer terms. Awards are based on remaining 11-12 eligibility.

Q. Will I be responsible for the emergency loan and book loan if I am not eligible for financial aid in the spring?

Answer: Yes, you will be responsible for the amount owed if you are no longer eligible to receive financial aid for summer.

Q. What may cause me to be ineligible to receive my summer financial aid?

Answer: Some reasons for losing financial aid eligibility for summer include but are not limited to:

  • Not meeting the terms of satisfactory academic progress at the end of the spring semester if you were on financial aid probation.
  • New information received from the Department of Education now showing you ineligible to receive aid.
  • Under-enrollment
  • No remaining financial aid eligibility for the award year.


Q. Will financial aid for summer cover the cost of tuition and fees for the May Term?

Answer: Financial aid for summer may cover the amount owed for the May Term given that you:

  1. complete the course attempted for the May Term
  2. remain eligible to receive financial aid for Summer
  3. have enough financial aid available to cover both the May Term and Summer charges

Remember – you will have to make the payment for these May Term charges yourself once your summer refund is received.

Q. How will the hours for the May term be counted for financial aid?

Answer: The hours completed for the May term will be added to summer registration. If your financial aid for fall and spring was processed based on less than full-time enrollment and you attend the May term you may be eligible for additional aid. If you are eligible for additional aid for the May term and you attend summer, your summer aid eligibility will be affected. If summer aid has already been processed you may not have additional eligibility for the May term.

You will need to complete a Revision Request Form so financial aid can determine if you should receive more funds based on the additional 3 hours completed during the May Term.
