HSU SUMMER SESSION FINANCIAL FAQs

Q: What aid is available for summer?
A: Only any unused academic year eligibility (from fall and spring terms) for Pell Grant or Direct Loans. Some students are eligible for an Extended Ed Grant, which waives a small portion of the per-unit fee. Some students seek out private loans for summer school.

Q: What makes me eligible for the Extended Ed Grant?
A: Students are eligible for an Extended Ed Grant if their EFC is equal to or below 8000, if they are enrolled in at least 6 units, and they are enrolled in “summer session” courses (regular academic HSU courses offered in the summer term). Students enrolled in “special session” or “extension” courses are not eligible for the Extended Ed grant (i.e. MSW, Study Abroad, etc.).

Q: How many units do I need to be enrolled in to be eligible for aid?
A: You must be enrolled in at least 6 units to receive a Direct Loan for summer. If you have remaining Pell Grant eligibility, you could receive a partial Pell Grant with an enrollment minimum of 1 unit.

Q: When will my summer aid be processed?
A: The Financial Aid Office cannot begin processing summer aid until spring grades are finalized and we have run our end-of-term processes for Satisfactory Academic Progress. We anticipate beginning processing in early June.

Q: When will my financial aid disburse?
A: We anticipate processing financial aid awards in early June. Disbursements will follow soon after that. You are responsible for any fees that financial aid does not cover.

Q: Will loans be disbursed with grants?
A:  That depends. Grants will disburse once attendance begins, regardless of the number of units a student is enrolled in. Loans disburse once attendance in 6 units begins. Example: You have been approved for a grant and a loan. You are enrolled in a 3-unit course for the first half of the summer term and a 3-unit course for the second half of the summer term.  The grant will be disbursed once attendance begins in the 3-unit course in the first half of the term. The loan will be disbursed once attendance begins in the second 3-unit course in the second half of the term.

Q: Can I use my fall aid to pay for summer?
A: No. Students must have a clear account balance before any fall aid is awarded. Financial aid disbursements for fall will be held back if you have a balance due for summer. Your fall classes will be cancelled if no payment is received by the fall term payment due date.

Q: Will I be cancelled if I don’t pay?
A: That depends. Student Financial Services runs a cancellation process at the beginning of each session of the summer term (1st half and 2nd half) to drop students for non-payment; however, students will NOT be dropped during this cancellation process if the student has a fee deferment approved and on file (see question below).
Students who enroll in classes after the cancellation process is complete will NOT be dropped for non-payment. It is the student’s responsibility to drop courses. Students who remain enrolled in courses, whether attended or not, will be responsible for tuition and fees.

Q: Can I defer my summer payment?
A: The College of eLearning & Extended Education offers a fee deferment policy for students expecting some form of financial aid or other funding. A Fee Deferment Agreement may be downloaded here (PDF) or obtained from the College of eLearning & Extended Education, Student Business Services Building, Suite 211.
Please note that a HOLD will be placed on the student record until the balance is paid in full, preventing students from adding classes, obtaining transcripts, etc. Payment for summer tuition and fees must be paid before the end of the summer term. Financial aid disbursements for fall will be held back if you have a balance due for summer. Your fall classes will be cancelled if no payment is received by the fall term payment due date.
The completed Fee Deferment Agreement can be submitted to the College of eLearning & Extended Education in the following ways:

  1. In person - Student Business Services Building, Suite 211 (second floor)
  2. E-mail – extended@humboldt.edu
  3. Fax – (707) 826-5885
  4. Mail: College of eLearning & Extended Education, 1 Harpst St., Arcata, CA 95521

Q: Is there a payment plan?
A: No. The due date to pay for summer tuition and fees may be found in the summer Registration Guide found on the HSU website. Students approved for fee deferment may make payments as long as the balance is paid in full before the end of the summer term. Please refer to the question above regarding deferring summer payment.
