Summer Financial Aid

Summer Financial Aid Availability

Financial aid availability for summer 2020 is based on your remaining annual eligibility from the  2019-2020 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 Washington College Grant (WCG) and/or College Bound Scholarship (CBS) may also obtain aid during summer term. However, any WCG or  CBS funding used during the summer counts against the 15 or 12 quarter maximums on those programs. Information on other aid sources is available within the Summer Financial Aid Policies document.

Application Deadline

You must have a complete  2019-2020 Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) on file before June 30,  2020, and submit an EWU Request for Summer  2020 Financial Aid Form to our office by  July 2, 2020, to be considered for summer financial aid funding.  The EWU Request for Summer  2020 Financial Aid Form will be available from our office beginning  April 13, 2020, 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 2020 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 6, 2020, or  June 15, 2020, for the summer semester students and beginning  June 22, 2020, or  July 20, 2020, for summer quarter students. For aid to disburse on  June 22nd, 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.
