If your application is late, it may not be processed before summer quarter begins. Be prepared to pay tuition with personal funds.
Your budget and offers will be based on the number of credits you have indicated that you intend to enroll in, which session(s) and whether they are at the graduate and/or undergraduate level.

The Financial Aid Office will begin making awards on or around May 8th, to students who submitted Summer applications by April 30, 2015.

You may check the status of your summer financial aid by visiting your account to look at your active messages or by viewing your 2014-2015 award.

When you are applying for Summer 2015 Financial Aid, we use the 2014-15 FAFSA to determine your eligibility. Summer is considered to be the last quarter of the academic year for Financial Aid at Evergreen.

Summer Financial Aid is generally loans only. Work study and most grants are not available.

In order to receive financial aid for summer quarter, you must complete your summer registration (both 1st and 2nd sessions) by July 6, 2014.

Your summer registration will not be dropped if you decide not to attend. If you fail to drop your registration, you will be responsible for any charges that remain on your account including, but not limited to, tuition and fees, financial aid that has been returned, and interest that accrues due to an unpaid balance.

We cannot accept summer financial aid applications after August 14, 2015.

Summer Quarter Costs

Summer Financial Aid is tailored to the individual student and your eligibility will depend on the number of credits you take, the session(s) you are in, your grade level, and the funds you have already received during the year.

Budgets are determined by what you put on your Summer Interest Form. The living expenses for one session are for a five week enrollment period and ten weeks for both sessions. Summer quarter costs are determined by adding living expenses to your summer tuition and fees.

Tuition is charged per credit during the summer, for details about Summer Tuition and Fees visit the Student Financial Services Web Page
