Students who have not reached their lifetime limit of Pell Grant eligibility and meet all federal eligibility requirements may be eligible to receive a Federal Pell Grant.
Students must have remaining annual eligibility (used less than 100%) or qualify to receive up to an additional 50% under the Year-Round Pell program.

Federal Student Loans:
Students enrolled in at least six credit hours for summer may be eligible to receive or apply for Federal Direct Loans.
Federal Direct Stafford Loans are based on annual borrowing limits that are reduced by amounts borrowed in the current academic year.
Federal Direct Graduate PLUS and Parent PLUS Loans are credit-based and can be awarded up to cost-of-attendance (less other aid received), and require the borrower to complete an online application at StudentLoans.gov.
Alternative (Private) Loans:
Private educational loans may be a good option if there is little or no remaining federal student aid/loan eligibility for your summer semester.
Private loans are credit-based and can be awarded up to cost-of-attendance (less other aid received).
Credit-worthy cosigners may be required in order to qualify.
All lenders and loan programs have different eligibility criteria; please make sure you understand their program requirements before applying.
