Eligible continuing and new students are considered for summer financial assistance by meeting the following criteria:

  • Must complete a 2019–2020 FAFSA (for federal aid consideration).
  • Must enroll in the summer term.
  • Must enroll half time for student loans (six credits for undergraduates and five for graduates).
  • Must meet eligibility criteria.

ASU students will receive a summer financial aid notification via email.

Summer awards will begin posting in mid to late April. The amount of financial aid disbursed will be based on actual enrollment. View the financial aid calendar for specific disbursement dates. Summer funding for Federal Direct Student Loans is limited to any remaining eligibility from the current academic year.

Types of Summer Aid Available

Limited institutional grant assistance may be available to students with high financial need as demonstrated by the FAFSA.

ASU Payment Plan

The ASU Payment Plan provides students with the option to pay any remaining summer charges not covered by summer financial aid over three payments during the summer.

Summer 2020 Standard Living Expenses
