Summer 2020 Financial Aid
Financial aid for the summer 2020 term is limited to Federal Pell Grants and some institutional aid, depending on the availability of funds.
Summer Federal Pell Grant
Due to limitations on the eligibility of Federal Pell Programs, some enrolled students may not be eligible for a Summer Pell Grant.
Generally, students who have received financial aid during the fall 2020 and/or spring 2020 and continue to meet Financial Aid Satisfactory Academic Progress, may be considered for a summer 2020 Pell Grant and additional institutional aid.
The Pell Grant is available to qualified students:
- Who enroll at least half-time (6 or more credits) and who may have exceeded their full-year scheduled award.
Example 1: If you received a Pell Grant for full-time enrollment in both the fall and spring, you are only eligible for a Summer Pell Grant if you enroll at least half-time (6 or more credits).
- Who enroll less than half-time (1-5 credits) or more and did not utilize their full-year scheduled Pell Grant eligibility during the fall and/or spring semesters (full time for both terms).
Example 2: If you received a Pell Grant at less than full-time enrollment during the fall and/or the spring, you may have Pell Grant eligibility remaining if you enroll at less half-time.
Note: Receiving a Federal Pell Grant during any semester will count toward your 600% Pell Grant Lifetime Limit.
Additional Aid for Summer 2020
Depending on the availability of institutional scholarships and grant funds, we may be able to offer some additional summer aid, but this is not guaranteed.
Awarding Process for Summer 2020 Aid
Students do not have to submit any additional forms (unless they are concurrently enrolled at another UH campus) to request summer 2020 aid. Your enrollment status will be reviewed and based on your eligibility, you may receive an award.
