Due to conditions related to COVID-19, all Residence Halls will be closed for the Summer 2020 sessions.
Summer financial aid awards are packaged separately from fall and spring awards. Types of financial aid available for summer include Pell Grants, student and parent loans, and scholarship opportunities. Since summer semester is part of the academic year 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.
We are pleased that Pell Grants are again available for summer term. Year-round Pell allows students to receive up to 150% of their regular grant award over an academic year, allowing them to take advantage of summer classes and finish on or ahead of schedule. As with spring and fall, students may receive 50% of their regular grant award for summer term instruction. Summer Pell usage will not impact eligibility for the 2020 Fall semester.
If you are transferring to Western Carolina University, 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.
