Financial Aid

FAQ - Summer Semester

  • What financial aid is available for summer semesters?
    • Federal aid during the summer is generally limited to loans and Pell grants for eligible students. Students who do not use their full year's loan or Pell eligibility during fall/spring semesters may have remaining aid available for summer. To determine your summer financial aid eligibility, your FAFSA from the preceding academic year is required. In addition, summer scholarships may be available from the WIU Scholarship Office. See the Summer Aid page for more information. 
  • When are summer loans disbursed?
    • Summer loans will be disbursed the first day of summer semester in June for those with an 8-week or a first 4-week registration. For those with only a second 4-week registration, disbursement will be made at the start of that session in July.
