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 2013 is based on the 2012-13 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 2012-13 FAFSA is on file at Seminole State by May 1.
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. All other students who wish to receive the Pell Grant in Summer Term should visit Student Services on any campus to speak to a specialist or contact Financial Aid at 407.708.2045. For more information, please visit the Pell Grants Web page.
Students may also be eligible to receive summer loans, which are available by request only. To request a loan, complete the Summer Loan Request Form, and submit it to a specialist in Student Services on any campus, or fax it to the Financial Aid Office at 407.708.2323. Because loans must be repaid, students are advised to borrow only what they need.
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 -- half two to three weeks after the end of the add/drop period for the term and half at the midway point of the term. This split disbursement of loans is in accordance with federal rules.
To avoid delays in your disbursement, 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
