Summer Aid


While the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) covers fall through the following summer, summer aid requires special processing. Since the summer is the same length as a regular semester, it has the same enrollment requirements. Half-time for undergraduate students is at least 6 semester hours and student loans require at least half-time enrollment. Some students receiving the Federal Pell Grant during the summer semester may be required to be enrolled in at least half-time or more.

If you have not exhausted your annual grant and loan eligibility by the end of the regular academic year (fall/spring), you may be eligible for summer financial aid.

EARN Indiana, launched in summer 2013, revamped the existing state work-study program. For more information about the EARN Indiana Program visit

It is recommended that students meet with their financial aid counselors to determine summer eligibility for financial assistance well before summer registration in April.
