Financial Aid

Students who attend Seminole State College receive the same quality education offered at a state university at about half the cost. To make summer courses even more affordable, financial aid is available in Summer Term for eligible students.

Financial Aid for Summer Term 2014 is based on the 2013-14 FAFSA. Students who haven't completed their FAFSA for the current academic year should visit the FAFSA website to complete it as soon as possible. Students who wish to defer payment of their fees for Summer Term should ensure that their 2013-14 FAFSA is on file at Seminole State by May 5.

Pell Grants

Students who have unused Pell Grant funds from the Fall and/or Spring terms may be eligible to receive the Pell Grant for their Summer Term classes. Current Seminole State students who have remaining funds automatically will be awarded a Pell Grant for Summer Term. For more information, please visit the Pell Grants Web page.

Summer Loans

Students may also be eligible to receive summer loans. Students who have loan funds remaining from Fall and/or Spring Term will be awarded loans automatically. While the awarding process is being automated, students may choose to request a loan by completing the Summer Loan Request Form, and submitting it to a specialist in Student Services on any campus. However, once the process is not automated, the forms will not be required to receive a summer loan.

Because loans must be repaid, students are advised to borrow only what they need.

Financial Aid Refunds

Financial Aid will be used to cover the cost of tuition and fees first. Any remaining funds will be refunded to the student. Students who are awarded Pell Grants will receive remaining Pell funds in one disbursement. Students who receive summer loans will receive their loans in two disbursements. This split disbursement of loans is in accordance with federal rules. Check the Financial Aid dates and deadlines Web page regularly for the latest information and refund dates. 

To avoid delays in your financial aid refund, be sure to check the to-do list in your MySeminoleState Student Center to see if you need to submit additional documents. If you have not created your MySeminoleState account and need help, visit the MySeminoleState Student Help page.

Check your Student Email account regularly so you don't miss important messages from the College regarding financial aid. For more information, visit Student Services, or contact the Financial Aid Office at 407.708.2045.
