Students are not eligible for most federal, state or institutional grant and scholarship programs in the summer.
Here is a list of aid programs that students can be considered for in the summer:
- Denominational Grant – This is a grant given to members of the Christian Reformed Church. The amount of the grant is $25 per semester hour for Michigan and non-Michigan residents. No separate application is necessary.
- Federal Pell Grant – Need is determined by filing the FAFSA (Free Application for Student Financial Aid). The Financial Aid Office will determine eligibility.
- Federal Direct Subsidized and Federal Direct Unsubsidized Loans – Most students who complete the FAFSA and who are enrolled at least half time during the summer are eligible for either of these loans or a combination of the two. A summer loan may affect the amount of loan the student will receive during the following academic year.
- Private Loans – Private loans are available to students who are enrolled less than half time for the summer term.
