Students are welcome to use financial aid to pay for summer classes but there are a few things you should know, especially by way of semester blocks.
Federal student aid is determined on a yearly basis so students who have already used their full award for the 2013-14 school year will not have funds available for the summer term.
Federal regulations require that:
- Your summer classes must begin and end within your chosen summer 2014 semester block.
- Coursework for the 2014 fall term cannot begin until after the official end date of your chosen summer term.
- Students in a spring semester block that ends after June 23, 2014 will not be eligible for the 2014 summer term. The next available semester block will be Fall Block 1 which begins Aug. 25, 2014.
