The summer financial aid application is available online at: www.mnstate.edu/financialaid
Summer is considered a third term in the academic year and uses the same FAFSA and financial information that was used during the preceding year. A separate summer application is required. All summer class registrations must be completed by the end of the drop/add period designated for each class. Undergraduate full-time enrollment for summer is 12 credits; graduate full-time enrollment is 8 graduate credits. Students must be registered for at least 6 credits to be eligible for federal financial aid. Work Study awards for summer are limited and awarded on a “first-applied” basis. Students enrolled fall and spring semesters who were ineligible for Work Study are usually eligible for Work Student during summer, if registered for at least 6 credits during summer semester. Maximum Work Study award for summer is $2,200. Financial aid is disbursed starting in June based on all registered credits.
