Summer Aid

Summer Aid

The summer is considered a part of the prior academic year, so you’ll need to complete a 2019-20 FAFSA to be considered for summer 2020 if you haven’t yet done so.

Applying for Summer Aid

  • Completing your FAFSA by May 15 means you will automatically be considered for summer financial aid. You must enroll in at least two credit hours in either summer session and meet general aid eligibility requirements.
  • Check your UNC email and monitor your ConnectCarolina To Do List for any additional requests in case we need more information to complete your aid application. Notifications of summer aid will begin in mid-April.

SUMMER AID OFFERS BASED ON ELIGIBILITY MAY INCLUDE:

  • Pell Grants
  • Direct Subsidized and Unsubsidized federal loans
    • If you borrowed the annual Direct Loan maximum during the fall or spring semester, you will not be eligible to borrow a Direct Loan during the summer term.
  • Parent PLUS loan
  • Private loans
  • Summer Degree Completion
    • Special program through the summer school that may have additional funding available for degree completion.
  • NC Summer Grant
    • Grant covering up to six credit hours in tuition and fees if you:
      • Are a undergraduate North Carolina Resident
      • Received University Grant or Covenant Scholarship during the 2019/2020 Academic Year
      • Completed between 24 and 29 credit hours during 2019/2020 at Carolina, and enroll in sufficient summer credit hours to have completed 30 hours or greater after completion of summer coursework

Your summer aid offer could change if your enrollment status changes. Dropping hours before or after the start of the summer session may result in repayment of financial aid, including funds already disbursed to you.
