Summer Financial Aid Eligibility Requirements

You must have a processed 2021-22 Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) on file with the Office of Student Financial Assistance (SFA) to be considered for summer financial aid.

If you are eligible for a Federal Pell Grant during the summer, your Pell Grant could be awarded from either the 2021-22 or 2022-23 academic year. We will review your eligibility from both years then award you the higher Pell Grant. If you have been awarded your full-time initial scheduled Pell Grant during 2021-22, you must be enrolled a minimum of 6 credit hours in summer to receive an additional Pell Grant award from the 2021-22 academic year and disbursement of those funds may be delayed based on your enrollment. To receive Pell Grant from either year, all outstanding requirements for that year must have been submitted to and processed by the Office of Student Financial Assistance. Receipt of Pell Grant will be counted toward your maximum 600% lifetime Pell Grant usage limit.

You must have all financial aid document requirements satisfied for both 2021-22 and 2022-23. Check your Financial Aid Requirements by logging into myMU.

You must be registered for one or more courses during the 2022 summer enrollment period for your summer financial aid request to be considered.  All courses must be applicable to your Course Program of Study (CPOS). Any course that is not CPOS eligible will not be considered in your summer aid decision. All CPOS updates must be completed by your academic advisor, working with the registrar’s office.  Refer to the Summer Aid Availability section for more details about enrollment requirements.

Some financial aid programs require you to complete additional forms in addition to requesting summer financial aid by following the procedures in the Summer Financial Aid Application Procedures section. Please refer to the Summer Aid Availability section for specific information about the types of aid available and to learn whether an additional application is required to receive a specific financial aid program for the summer.
