PELL Grants, other grants and loan programs may be available on a very limited basis. Summer session financial aid is unique in awarding from fall and spring semesters. Summer Direct Loans are limited to a student's remaining eligibility from the 2014-2015 academic year. If a student used their full annual eligibility for PELL Grant and student loans in Fall 2014 and Spring 2015, then the student may not have any remaining eligibility for Summer 2015. The work study program is not available during summer session.
