Registration for the Summer 2014 semester begins on April 23rd. Financial aid is limited for the Summer semester.

Students who are on financial aid “warning” or on “academic plans” for Spring 2014 will not be considered for an award until after spring grades have been posted.

Students who are degree-seeking at another school do not qualify to apply for financial aid at FCC for Summer.

Pell Grant awards
If you received two full-time semesters of Pell grant in the current school year (2013/14), you are not eligible for any additional Pell for the Summer semester.

If you were a part-time student during Fall or Spring semester, you may have additional Pell grant eligibility for Summer.
Once you register for your Summer class(es), Financial Aid will determine your Pell eligibility and post awards to People Soft. Be sure to check your People Soft regularly for awards. Check with our office if you have questions.

Summer Student Loans
You will need to be attending at least 6 credits during the Summer semester to qualify for a student loan. If you will be applying for a student loan for Summer, stop by the Financial Aid Office to pick up an application and ask about eligibility. Visit our Student Loan web page for more information on the loan process.

Withdrawing from Summer classes
If you are awarded a Federal Pell Grant or a Federal Direct Loan, please check with the Financial Aid Office prior to dropping any classes. This is important so that you can understand the impact to your financial aid eligibility.

If you are awarded financial aid funds and you decide not to attend the class(es), please drop the class(es) prior to the start date. You will not receive any funds for classes in which you never begin attendance
