Summer is the last semester of the academic award year at UVU. If you submitted a FAFSA to UVU during the Fall or Spring semesters of the 2013-2014 aid year, then your FAFSA information will carry over to Summer. If you have not submitted a FAFSA yet for 2013-2014, you will need to submit it to UVU.
There are two types of awards available for Summer semester - Pell Grants and student loans. The awards are based on individual student eligibility. If you have received a full Pell Grant for Fall and Spring semesters, you will not have remaining Pell Grant for Summer. You may have remaining Pell Grant eligibility for Summer semester if you only attended one semester or attended part-time, either at UVU or another institution for the 2013-2014 aid year. Pell Grant amounts are subject to each student's Pell Grant Lifetime Eligibility percentage. Also note that if you have received federal loan money at UVU or another institution during the aid year, you may not have any additional loan eligibility for Summer semester.
Summer awarding will not begin until late Spring 2014. Please check your UVLink account
for award information for Summer, and visit with a Financial Aid Counselor if you
Utah Valley University created this Summer Semester Scholarship to help students within two semesters of graduating to attend summer and put them a semester closer to graduation. This scholarship is designed as part of Utah Valley University’s Completion Initiative, providing students with resources to complete and graduate with their degree. Summer semester is one of the options available to assist students in their studies.
Federal Pell Grants are available up to 24 credit hours during the academic school year, and many students use those funds for fall and spring semesters leaving no additional funds to attend summer semester.
If you meet the eligibility requirements, we encourage you to apply, with the understanding that priority will be given to those students within two semesters of graduating.
