Financial Aid

For the Fall Term 2020, we are offering online and remote courses.  Remote courses show a day and time, and will meet virtually via live video. A limited number of labs, math, nursing, public safety programs, performing arts, automotive, HVAC, plumbing, and some language courses will resume on campus and are notated in the course schedule.

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 2020 is based on the 2019-20 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. 

Pell Grants

Students who are eligible for Pell Grants, meeting Standard of Academic Progress (SAP) and taking courses required for their program will receive Pell during the Summer Term.  Students who have used their full Pell allocation for Fall and Spring terms (12 credit hours each term) must be enrolled in at least six credit hours during the Summer Term for Pell eligibility. Pell grants for Summer Term will be awarded automatically for eligible students. For more information, please visit the Pell Grants webpage.


Many scholarships are available for qualified students returning to Seminole State or starting at the College in Summer Term. Be sure to contact the Office of Admissions and/or the Office of Financial Aid and Scholarships to see if you qualify for Summer Term scholarships. You can also apply for Foundation Scholarships through April 17 and visit Seminole State's scholarships website to learn about funds that may be available to you this summer. 

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 with the option to accept or decline the loan. 

Summer loans are considered a one term only loan. Therefore, they are disbursed in two disbursements.  

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 webpage 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 and your message center in MySeminoleState regularly so you don't miss important information from the College regarding financial aid, registration dates, deadlines and more.
