Summer Financial Aid
Take advantage of our Federal Pell grant, Federal Direct student loans and student employment during the summer semester. Certain restrictions apply to each of these programs.
Federal Pell Grant
The U.S. Department of Education has announced that year-round Pell grant funds will be available for qualifying students who have not reached their lifetime eligibility usage. This change allows students to continue enrollment toward completion of their selected certification or degree program. To receive a Summer Pell grant, students must meet all of the following requirements:
- Have completed the 2022/2023 Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) and listed Clark State on that application (federal school code 004852)
- Meet Financial Aid Satisfactory Academic Progress standards
- Be enrolled in at least 6 credit hours in courses that are required for your certificate or degree**
**If you were enrolled less than full-time Fall 2022 or Spring 2023 and had a Pell grant award, unused funds may be available for Summer term for enrollment less than 6 credit hours.
The Financial Aid Office will automatically award Pell grant for Summer semester to qualifying students.
Direct Student Loans
You may be eligible for loan funds for Summer semester if you have not exhausted your total loan eligibility for the current academic year. It is wise to plan ahead and reserve some loan funds if you plan to attend Summer semester. You must complete the Financial Aid Request Form found on the Financial Aid Forms web page if you are requesting a loan for Summer classes.
Please note: The Direct Loan program requires at least six credit hours during the Summer term.
Students interested in part-time employment can search for available position on campus.
