2018 Summer Session

Summer Financial Aid

Summer Financial Aid funding is limited to the Pell Grant and Direct Loans. The Pell Grant will be on your award if you eligible for it. You will need to be enrolled in courses in order to determine your final Pell Grant eligibility. Any students interested in a Direct Loan will need to complete a Summer Direct Loan Request Form and submit it to the Student Financial Services Office. More information about the financial aid process >

Year-Round Pell is here! Year-round Pell allows students to receive up to 150% of their Pell Grant for the 2017/2018 academic year. This award allows students with a Pell Grant to complete their program faster. You must be enrolled at least half-time.

New students

Students starting their first semester at NSCC during the summer sessions must complete the 2017/2018 FAFSA in order to receive financial aid. We recommend students who will be receiving their high school diploma after the summer session I starts to wait until summer session II or you can make a payment. As you need a high school diploma or GED in order to receive financial aid and to be matriculated into a program. Also, students who are only attending the summer sessions and are enrolled at another institution will not be eligible for financial aid for the summer.

Less than half-time students

If you have exhausted your Pell Grant eligibility for the 2017/2018 award year, you can receive a Pell Grant award based on your 2018/2019 Pell Grant eligibility. Please submit the 2018/2019 FAFSA.

Important Information

  • Satisfactory Academic Progress is reviewed each semester. Students who are on Warning or an Appeal for the spring semester should either make a payment for the summer or wait to take classes in Summer Session II. The Satisfactory Academic Progress review will happen after the Summer Session I courses have started. Students will be notified if they are no longer making Satisfactory Academic Progress through their Pipeline account and NSCC email. This could create a balance due to your student account.
  • All students must be enrolled in an eligible degree or certificate program. This includes recent NSCC graduates.
  • Once you have been awarded financial aid and registered for summer courses, please review your bill to make sure your financial aid covers the amount due. A bookstore credit will be emailed to your NSCC email if you have money that exceeds your tuition and fees.
  • For a Direct Loan you must be in a total of 6 credits for summer sessions.
  • Any changes to your enrollment can change the amount of funding you will receive, which may result in a balance due.
