Summer Financial Aid

Summer Financial Aid


Enrolling Summer semester 2016?  Action is required.

Review your award letter carefully.

Summer financial aid options consist of Federal Pell Grant and Federal Direct Loans.  However if you exhaust your Pell Grant or Direct Loan eligibility during the 2015-16 academic year at CSCC or another institution you will not receive funds from either program for Summer semester.  Therefore, if you want to “reserve” some of your eligibility for Summer semester 2016 you must complete an Award Revision Form. If you are not sure, a Financial Aid representative is available to assist you.

If you have Summer aid on your Financial Aid Award Letter, no further action is needed.
