The summer Pell Grant has returned for students who received the grant in the previous Fall and Spring terms. The amount you are eligible to receive depends on your enrollment status (full-time enrollment=full award amount, half-time enrollment=half of the award amount).
Federal Direct Subsidized and Unsubsidized loans are available for students who did not use any or all of their federal loan eligibility during the previous Fall and Spring terms and are enrolled in 1.5 units or more. Parent PLUS loans can be borrowed by a parent if the parent’s loan application is approved and the student is enrolled in 1.5 units or more (parents whose summer PLUS loan application is denied should contact the Financial Aid Office to discuss their options).
Private parent and student loans are available through various banks. If you will be financing your summer program through a private loan, be sure to check with your lender to see if they have an enrollment requirement. Some require you to be enrolled half-time or more (1.5 units or more) whereas some do not have an enrollment requirement.
