  • All students working on their first bachelor’s degree will be evaluated for grants first. Eligibility for federal grants depends upon your enrollment status as of May 23, 2018 (the last day to add classes for Summer Term 2018).
  • For grant-eligible students, grants are awarded based on the anticipated enrollment indicated on the Summer Application. These awards may be adjusted to match actual enrollment as of the last day to add classes / tuition deadline. If you enroll in fewer credits than indicated on the Summer Application, it may result in an unpaid balance owing on your tuition account.
