If you have remaining financial aid eligibility for the 2015-2016 school year, take advantage of this opportunity to get ahead. If you have no remaining aid eligibility then you may qualify for funding through the SEOG program (see below for details). Priority consideration for SEOG funds will be given to students who enroll by May 13th. Summer awards can be reviewed and/or accepted via student self-service after you enroll.
Three types of financial aid are available for summer.
Bookstore Charges: Students may charge books to their Financial Aid from May 22 through June 9. After June 9th, you must contact your financial aid office.
Satisfactory Academic Progress (SAP): All FA Students were recently sent a SAP status reminder (Meets, Warning or Probation/Plan of Action). Students currently on Warning or Probation/Plan of Action status will not be awarded summer aid until after the end of the spring semester and SAP is evaluated; tentatively scheduled for May 14. If your session starts before this date you will need to make payment arrangements before the class begins.
Students whose SAP status is SUSPEND at the end of the spring term will not be eligible for financial aid until a SAP Appeal is submitted, reviewed and approved. SUSPENDED students must pay in advance for any class scheduled to start prior to appeal approval. Appeals may be submitted anytime and the appeal outcome will be e-mailed to the student. Bookstore charging is not available until a SAP Appeal has been approved.
Refunds: Summer refunds for Pell, SEOG and Direct Loans (first half of loan) will begin June 23 for students enrolled in classes with a May or June 6 start date. Refunds will continue every Thursday until the end of the summer term.
The second half of your Direct Loan will be scheduled to refund July 28 or after the calendar midpoint of your summer enrollment period (halfway between your first day and last day of summer classes).
REMEMBER, you can get your financial aid questions answered 24/7/365 by calling the KCTCS Student Service Center at 1-855-469-6282.
