Summer Financial Aid

Financial aid availability for summer 2019 is based on your remaining annual eligibility from the 2018-2019 school year. In general, most summer financial aid is loans only, although if you are Pell eligible, you may qualify for a Pell Grant in the summer. Certain restrictions apply and eligibility will need to be determined by the Financial Aid and Scholarship office. Students who are eligible for the College Bound Scholarship (CBS) may also obtain CBS during summer term. However, any CBS funding used during the summer counts against the 12 quarter maximum on the program. Information on other aid sources is available within the Summer Financial Aid Policies document.


Application Deadline

You must have a complete 2018-2019 Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) on file before June 30, 2019 and submit an EWU Request for Summer 2019 Financial Aid Form to our office by July 5, 2019 to be considered for summer financial aid funding.  The EWU Request for Summer 2019 Financial Aid Form will be available from our office beginning March 8, 2019 (first day of summer pre-registration), and requires consultation with a financial aid advisor prior to submittal.  Other summer forms and policies are available at the bottom of this page.

Requirements and Disbursement Information

You must be registered for summer courses and consult with our office prior to requesting summer aid. Your summer award will not be adjusted for course changes that occur after submission of your EWU Request for Summer 2019 Financial Aid form.

You will be notified within 60 days of submitting your request regarding your summer award.

You must be enrolled at least half-time (4 credits graduate or 6 credits for all others) to receive summer federal loans and potentially Pell Grant. This applies to both quarter and semester students.

If you receive summer aid for self-paced online courses, they must be completed two weeks prior to the end of the term in which you received aid for them. This requirement overrides the 12 month completion rule for those courses.

Summer aid will disburse beginning May 8, 2019 or June 17, 2019 for the summer semester students and beginning June 24, 2019 or July 22, 2019 for summer quarter students. For aid to disburse on June 24th, you must be registered in at least six credits as an undergraduate or four credits as a graduate/doctoral for the eight-week summer session or the first four-week mini-session. Aid is first applied to your university charges. Remaining funds are deposited to your bank account or sent to your mailing address.

If you withdraw from all courses prior to the start dates of those courses, you must return all financial aid funds to EWU. If you withdraw after the start of summer quarter, you may be required to repay all or a portion of any funds received and future financial aid will be suspended.

Please consult with our office if you will be taking courses that begin prior to the start of the summer session or after the end of summer session. We may or may not be able to fund those courses.
