  • Advance sooner to the next class level and qualify for more financial aid

Summer aid available: Federal Pell Grants, Summer Assistance Grant (SAG), Graduate Initiative Grant (GIG), and federal student and parent loans to assist students with summer fees. Other types of additional summer financial aid may be available for students who qualify. Summer 2018 financial aid information will be available on-line at March 1, 2018.


Summer SAG, Pell and Federal student loan awards are based on 2017-2018 academic year eligibility and initial enrollment in the total number of units from all sessions.

Register Early

Summer registration is taking place on May 7th – June 14th and does not require pre-payment or financial aid deferment. Once registered, students’ financial aid eligibility will be determined based on enrollment. Any awarded aid accepted will show as “pending aid” to be applied toward Summer 2018 fee.

Summer registration that occur on June 15th or thereafter will require students to pay fees first and then be reimbursed with financial aid for which the student qualifies.
