Summer Financial Aid
Enrolling Summer semester 2022? Action is required.
Review your offer letter carefully on Financial Aid Self Service. Make sure you are reviewing the correct year for your plans of enrollment.
Summer financial aid options consist of Federal Pell Grant and Federal Direct Loans. Students eligible for the Pell Grant will have one additional full term award for Summer semester. This award is called "Year Round Pell." The amount will pro-rate based on your enrollment as described in the "Awards for Less Than Full Time" chart. If you used all of your awarded Pell Grant in Autumn and Spring semesters you must enroll at least half time to receive funds.
If you exhaust your Direct Loan eligibility during Autumn and Spring semesters at CSCC or another institution you will not receive funds for Summer semester. Therefore, if you want to “reserve” some of your Direct Loan eligibility for Summer semester you must complete an Award Revision Form. If you are not sure, a Financial Aid representative is available to assist you.
To reserve loan funds for Summer 2022 semester, complete the 2021-22 Award Revision Form.
If you have Summer aid showing on your Financial Aid Self-Service, no further action is needed.
