Financial Aid

This is the ONLY time you are eligible for an additional year of financial aid - act now!

In the future, you will have to save any residual financial aid from Fall and Spring semesters to cover summer school tuition. All you need to do is fill out the 2015-2016 FAFSA and register for at least 6 credit hours this summer. Once you are registered, your eligibility will be automatically evaluated and sent to you. This process typically takes at least 2 weeks, so it is very important to fill out the FAFSA now! 


There are scholarships available for SEE! Apply now!
