Summer Aid + Term Bill Payment 

Applying for summer aid through the Office of Financial Aid 

If you are enrolled at least ½ time [6.0 credits or more], you may apply for summer financial aid. If you were a recipeint of Pell for fall and spring, you may be eligible for a Pell grant in the summer.

  • Please visit OFA's Summer Aid webpage to get started. 
  • Make sure you have a 19-20 FAFSA on file as it necessary to receive funding for the Summer 2020 session.
  • Financial Aid will send you an updated award letter via email once processed. This process may take up to two weeks.
  • Note that term bills will not be assessed a late fee due to COVID-19 circumstances as stated above.

Viewing your summer aid on your award letter

  • Before emailing the office about the status of your summer financial aid, please check to see if your summer aid is already on your award letter. Follow steps below.
  • Log in to view your award letter (please note that OFA will be emailing you once your award is ready).

The Pell Grant hasn't "crossed over" to your term bill

...aka Pell hasn't paid its portion of the summer 2020 term bill. Here's why you don't see your additional Pell on your summer '20 term bill yet. 

  • Please note that when spring 2020 grades are posted and the Office of Financial Aid reviews you for Satisfactory Academic Progress (SAP)Academic Progress (SAP), and if there is no issue, the funds will cross over (and show on your term bill) by end of the first week of June.
  • This process happens every year.
