Consideration for summer assistance applies to regularly matriculated students (students who have been admitted as regular students to CSUSM) and who are enrolled in courses for degree credit. Current financial aid recipients who are enrolled in summer courses and who appear to have remaining Pell Grant or loan eligibility for summer will be notified by the Financial Aid & Scholarships Office prior to the summer payment deadline. A separate application is not required for summer. Students must be enrolled in a minimum of six undergraduate units or five units of graduate level courses to be considered for student loans funds.
Financial aid for summer is available for students who were financial aid recipients during the preceding Fall 2020 or Spring 2021 semesters. To be considered for summer financial aid a student must meet the following requirements:
Students who are enrolled and determined eligible for summer financial aid will be notified via e-mail at their CSUSM e-mail address. Students will be notified of any remaining loan eligibility only if enrolled in a minimum of six units if an undergraduate or five units if a graduate student. Notifications will be sent on a rolling basis beginning in May.
Financial aid funds are first applied to the student account to pay for Tuition and Registration Fees. Financial aid awards do not pay user fees, such as parking fees, late fees, or fines. Students receiving student loan funds must be enrolled in a minimum of six units during the summer session to be eligible for a loan disbursement. Dates of disbursement and eligibility requirements are available on the financial aid website: www.csusm.edu/finaid/.
