If you are enrolled at least half time during the summer term, you are eligible for a limited number of financial aid programs.

Apply for aid

Complete our summer financial aid application and the FAFSA for consideration.

Students are not eligible for most federal, state or institutional grant and scholarship programs in the summer.

Aid programs

Here is a list of aid programs that students can be considered for in the summer:

  • Denominational Grant – This is a grant given to members of the Christian Reformed Church. The amount of the grant is $25 per semester hour for Michigan and non-Michigan residents. No separate application is necessary.
  • Federal Pell Grant – Need is determined by filing the FAFSA (Free Application for Student Financial Aid). The Financial Aid Office will determine eligibility.
  • Federal Direct Subsidized and Federal Direct Unsubsidized Loans – Most students who complete the FAFSA and who are enrolled at least half time during the summer are eligible for either of these loans or a combination of the two. A summer loan may affect the amount of loan the student will receive during the following academic year.
  • Private Loans – Private loans are available to students who are enrolled less than half time for the summer term.
