Summer Financial Aid

Summer Financial Aid Availability

Financial aid for summer 2021 is based on your remaining annual eligibility from the  2020-2021 school year. In general, most summer financial aid is often limited to loans only. But, if you  qualify for Federal Pell Grant or Washington state aid, you may have grant aid options. Restrictions apply and eligibility will need to be determined by the Financial Aid and Scholarship Office. Receipt of either grant will count toward lifetime limits on these funding sources.

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 2021 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 semester aid will disburse beginning May 11, 2021 or June 16, 2021, depending on enrollment. Summer quarter aid will disburse beginning June 21, 2021 or July 19, 2021, depending on enrollment. For aid to disburse on the first available term date, you must be registered in at least six credits (undergraduate) or four credits (graduate) which commence on that date. 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 regular summer session or after the end of the regular summer session.
