Financial Aid

Summer 2014 Financial Aid Information

Financial aid is very limited during the summer session.

Federal regulations state that you may be eligible for a Pell Grant for summer if you did not receive a Pell Grant as a full-time student during both the Fall Semester 2013 and the Spring Semester 2014. Summer Pell Grants are awarded based on the 2013-2014 FAFSA information. For example, if you did not attend college in the Fall Semester 2013, you have remaining Pell Grant eligibility that can be used for the Summer Session 2014.  Or if you attended as a part-time student in either the Fall 2013 or Spring 2014 Semesters, you may have remaining Pell Grant eligibility for Summer Session 2014.

Kishwaukee College DOES NOT process Direct Loans for the Summer Session.
