There is no separate summer aid application. Students who enroll for the summer and have a FAFSA on file for the aid year preceding the summer semester will be automatically considered.
Accept your awards on My ASU under Finances. Remember, summer financial aid is at the end of the current academic year.
If you received less than a full academic year of Pell Grant in the fall and spring semester(s), you may be eligible for the remainder of your Pell Grant scheduled award in the summer. You will be automatically considered and awarded any Pell Grant funds for which you are eligible for in the summer.
You may use your financial aid towards your costs for study abroad. You can submit a cost sheet to the Financial Aid Office provided to you by the Center of Global Education Services to increase your summer costs of attendance. You will only be considered for any additional Federal Stafford Loans, Parent PLUS Loans and/or Private Education Loans.
The census dates for all terms are can be found on our Census Policy.
All awards, except for loans, will prorate throughout the summer census date according to our Census Policy.
The amount of financial aid disbursed will be based on actual enrollment. Summer disbursement begins in May for students enrolled in session A or C. Students only enrolled in session B receive summer disbursements beginning early July. Specific dates will be available as we approach the summer semester on the financial aid calendar.
If you have not received your entire TEACH Grant eligibility for the fall/spring semesters ($4,000 per academic year) and based on your enrolled credit hours for the summer semester, you may receive some or all of your remaining TEACH Grant eligibility.
Your summer financial aid is determined based on your enrolled credit hours, your remaining aid eligibility and availability of funds.
Three scenarios may occur:
The Obama Scholars Program does not provide aid for the summer semester. You may be awarded with other forms of financial aid.
You may request an additional Federal Direct Unsubsidized Stafford Loan by submitting a letter to Financial Aid and Scholarship Services in writing. If there are any remaining eligibility from the fall and spring semesters, the balance may be awarded to you.
