Calculate Anticipated Summer 2015 Aid Eligibility

West Lafayette and College of Technology Statewide Locations

To calculate your anticipated summer aid, please review the following available funding for undergraduate students enrolled:

  • 1-5 credit hours:

      Pell Grant Eligibility:
      Students who received a Pell Grant and were enrolled less than 12 hours during the fall or spring semester may be eligible to receive Pell Grant during the summer.

      Example: A student who attended full-time in the fall and half-time in the spring, would still have a half-time Pell award remaining for the summer 2015 session.

      Institutional Gift Aid:
      Some limited institutional gift aid is available to students during summer enrollment. This funding is dependent on availability and is subject to change.

      Students with an academic year estimated family contribution of 5,000 or less could potentially receive up to $1,000 in grant or scholarship funding. Students with an academic year estimated family contribution between 5,001 - 10,000 could potentially receive up to $500 in grant or scholarship funding.

  • 6 or more credit hours:

      Pell Grant Eligibility:
      Students who received a Pell Grant and were enrolled less than 12 hours during the fall or spring semester may be eligible to receive Pell Grant during the summer.

      Example: A student who attended full-time in the fall and half-time in the spring, would still have a half-time Pell award remaining for the summer 2015 session.

      Institutional Gift Aid:
      Some limited institutional gift aid is available to students during summer enrollment. This funding is dependent on availability and is subject to change.

      Students with an academic year estimated family contribution of 5,000 or less could potentially receive up to $3,000 in grant or scholarship funding. Students with an academic year estimated family contribution between 5,001 - 10,000 could potentially receive up to $1,500 in grant or scholarship funding.

      Summer Work Study:
      Students who were awarded work study during the academic year and would like to receive work study during the summer 2015 session will need to request this on their summer aid application. A student could potentially receive up to a $1,000 work study award. Work study will be awarded as long as funding is available.

      Purdue/Perkins Loan:
      Students who have an academic year estimated family contribution of 10,000 or less could receive up to $2,500 in a Purdue or Perkins Loan for the summer term.

      Stafford Loan Eligibility:
      Stafford loan eligibility is contingent upon your summer grade level and your academic year borrowing.

      Example: As a sophomore the annual maximum is $6,500. If you only borrowed $5,000 during the academic year you could be eligible to borrow up to $1,500 for summer.

      If you have not borrowed your annual maximum amount, please visit http://www.purdue.edu/dfa/loans/stafford.php to calculate your remaining eligibility based on grade level and academic year borrowing.

      PLUS Loan:
      PLUS Loans can be taken out to cover the cost of education minus other types of financial aid. However, these loans require a credit check and not all that apply are approved to borrow. If you received a PLUS Loan during the academic year, you are still required to complete another application for the summer term. See http://www.purdue.edu/dfa/loans/plus.php for additional information and steps to apply.
