Summer financial aid

Limited funds are available for summer. Most students, even if they receive some summer funding, will still pay out-of-pocket costs too.

Eligibility

To be considered for aid:

  • You must have a valid FAFSA on file for the current academic year.
  • Undergraduates must be enrolled in at least six credits. Graduate students must be enrolled in at least three credits.
  • You must be a degree-seeking student and making satisfactory academic progress toward completion of your degree.

Fund availability

Because most students have received their maximum Pell grant and loan funds during the academic year, summer funds are extremely limited. Typically, students attending summer session receive any unused Pell or Stafford loans from the academic year (as well as Parent PLUS loan for dependent undergraduates or Graduate PLUS loan for graduate students).

Most academic awards are not available in summer, including the Washington State Need Grant, SEOG, Cougar Commitment, work-study, Vancouver Academic Achievement Award and Vancouver Transfer Achievement Award.
