The Financial Aid and Scholarship Office helps you obtain funding for your higher education. Financial aid includes scholarships, grants, tuition waivers, work study and loans.
Financial aid availability for Summer 2016 is based on your remaining annual eligibility from the 2015 - 2016 school year. This is limited to loan funding only for most students. However, if you are eligible for Pell Grant and did not use your full nine month allotment during the immediately prior academic year, you may use your remaining Pell Grant for the summer term(s). Students who are eligible for the College Bound Scholarship (CBS) may also obtain aid for the summer under that program. However, any CBS funding used during the summer counts against the 12 quarter maximum on the program. Information on other aid sources is available within the Summer Financial Aid Policies document.
You must have a complete 2015-2016 Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) on file before June 30, 2016 and submit an EWU Request for Summer 2016 Financial Aid Form to our office by July 8, 2016 to be considered for summer financial aid funding. The EWU Request for Summer 2016 Financial Aid Form will be available from our office beginning April 18, 2016 (first day of summer pre-registration), and requires consultation with a financial aid advisor prior to submittal. Other summer forms and policies are available at the bottom of this page. The final tuition payment deadline is July 22, 2016.
You must be registered for summer courses and consult with our office prior to requesting summer aid. Your summer award will not be adjusted for course changes that occur after submission of your EWU Request for Summer 2016 Financial Aid form.
You will be notified in May and June regarding your summer award.
You must be enrolled at least half-time (5 credits graduate or 6 credits for all others) to receive summer aid.
If you receive summer aid for self-paced online courses, they must be completed two weeks prior to the end of the term in which you received aid for them. This requirement overrides the 12 month completion rule for those courses.
Summer aid will disburse beginning May 11, 2016 for the summer semester students and beginning June 20, 2016 or July 18, 2016 for summer quarter students. For aid to disburse on June 20, you must be registered in at least six credits as an undergraduate or five credits as a graduate/doctoral for the eight-week summer session or the first four-week mini-session. Aid is first applied to your university charges. Remaining funds are deposited to your bank account or sent to your mailing address.
If you withdraw from all courses prior to the start dates of those courses, you must return all financial aid funds to EWU. If you withdraw after the start of summer quarter, you may be required to repay all or a portion of any funds received and future financial aid will be suspended.
Please consult with our office if you will be taking courses that begin prior to the start of the summer session or after the end of summer session. We may or may not be able to fund those courses.
