Financial Aid for Summer 2021


Important Reminders

  • Requesting financial aid for the Summer term is a separate process from the Fall and Spring semesters.
  • Include MTSU on the FAFSA (003510). If you already have a 2020-2021 FAFSA on file, you do not need to complete it again for summer.
  • You must be maintaining Satisfactory Academic Progress.
  • You must be admitted as a degree-seeking student. Transient students are NOT eligible for federal or state financial aid at MTSU.
  • Your financial aid budget is based on the number of hours and the part of term for which you are enrolled.
  • Contact before dropping and/or adding courses. Your financial aid could be affected. This means that you could owe a balance to MTSU.
  • Typically, financial aid refunds are available at the start of your first enrolled summer course.
  • Until Spring 2021 grades are posted and continuing eligibility is determined, students may not be able to use federal financial aid to confirm enrollment by May 12 for summer classes.
