Financial Aid

Summer Session 2015

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 2014. The work study program is not available during summer session.

How to Apply

  1. Students must file the 2014/2015 Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA.gov) using 2014 Tax information. The deadline for filing 2014/2015 FAFSA on the Web applications is June 30, 2015.
  2. Students must be registered in their 2015 summer course work, before they can submit Supplement form to be considered for summer assistance. (See enrollment requirements below.)
  3. Print and return the Summer Session 2015 -
    1. Available March 1, 2015
    2. Supplement Form to the ISU Financial Aid Office early for best consideration of limited programs.

Check your 2014/2015 summer Financial Aid status on the Finance tab in BengalWeb, (see Financial Aid Requirements, Satisfactory Academic Progress, and Accept My Financial Aid). Processing of summer aid begins after spring mid-term grades are posted.

Satisfactory Academic Progress (SAP) Policy Requirements - Student with SAP issues may experience a delay in receiving funds. The previous term's grades must be checked once grade posting is completed by Registrar's Office. Any SAP issues must be resolved before federal aid can be released.

Enrollment requirements for summer remain the same as the fall and spring semesters:

Note: Any classes added after the "census date" will not count toward determining your PELL Grant and SEOG eligibility. The census date for summer session is the last day to add/drop in the early four week session or the date of disbursement for students who are awarded after that date.

You have been notified of your Summer Award. What's next?

When you have registered for summer semester classes and Student Financial Services has billed your BengalWeb account, you will see the amount due on the BengalWeb Finance tab (right hand column).

Financial Services will apply the funds toward your University charges and disburse any remaining funds to the student approximately five days prior to your classes earliest start date.

Caution... A balance may be remaining which the student is responsible for. Check the BengalWeb Finance tab in the right hand column. Click on the appropriate semester in "My Account" to view balance and fees. See Instruction. For assistance call (208) 282-3000 - Student Financial Services.
