Pell eligible students may receive half of their Pell Grant award if they enroll in six or more units. Students may also apply for loans during the spring semester for use in the summer.
Check with the financial aid office for the final day to apply for loans (usually around April). Students are eligible for the tuition waiver during the summer intersession.
In order to minimize your reliance on financial aid/loans be sure to budget, plan, fundraise, and apply to as many scholarships as possible.
