Is Financial Aid Available for Summer School?

Summer financial aid awards are packaged separately from fall/spring awards. Types of financial aid available for summer include student and parent loans. Since summer semester is part of the academic year (fall/spring) just completed, only unused eligibility for student and/or parent loans can be awarded. Your eligibility for loans also depends on your grade level since maximum annual loan eligibility varies with grade level.

If you are transferring to Western Carolina  you may be eligible for some of the same types of aid you received at your previous school, but will still need to go through the full awarding process. To begin this process, you will need to log into your existing FAFSA to add our school code. 

To apply for summer financial aid, you must:

  • For Summer 2015 you must have completed a 2014-2015 FAFSA.
  • Complete a Summer School Questionnaire, which is available in February and due by April 1.
  • Enroll in a minimum of six hours (for undergraduate students) and three  hours (for graduate students).
