Types of Aid Available for Summer
If you are awarded aid for the summer, you will receive a Financial Aid Notification (FAN) at your university email account. You can also check your awards via OneStart.
All students requesting summer aid will be evaluated for summer federal Stafford loan eligibility. If you received your full annual eligibility in federal Stafford loans during the academic year, you will not be eligible for federal Stafford loans in the summer.
New borrowers will receive an e-mail at your university email account instructing you on how to complete the Master Promissory Note (MPN) for your loan. Your MPN must be completed and you must meet the eligibility requirements at the top of the page before your loans will be sent to the school.
If you borrowed a loan during the 2009/10 academic year, your loan will automatically be sent to the school if you meet the eligibility requirements at the top of the page. If you did not borrow during the 2009/10 academic year, please read the “New Borrowers” information above.
For most students, summer aid consists of private student loans and/or federal PLUS loans. Visit the links below for information and to apply:
The process of certifying Private Loan and Federal PLUS Loans will begin after March 18, 2010, and requires verification of Summer 2010 enrollment and meeting the previously listed eligibility standards.
Federal Pell Grants
Students who have additional Federal Pell Grant eligibility for 2009/10 aid year are identified and awarded during the summer packaging process. Typically, full-time students that received Federal Pell Grants for the Fall 2009 and Spring 2010 semesters do not have remaining eligibility for Summer 2010 Federal Pell Grants.

If you are interested in summer FWS but did not receive FWS during the 2009/10 aid year, please send a summer 2009 FWS request to us via Ask an Advisor. Your request will be reviewed to determine if you are eligible as well as the availability of FWS funding for additional awards.
