Summer Aid

To be considered for summer financial aid, you must:

  • file a FAFSA for 2023-24 and have been awarded for that academic year
  • be a continuing student from the 2023-24 academic year, or a new student who will enroll at SDSU for the fall 2024 semester
  • be making Satisfactory Academic Progress, as defined by the Office of Financial Aid & Scholarships, as a result of your cumulative units and grades during the summer 2023, fall 2023, and spring 2024 semesters

Limited funding

Financial aid to attend summer classes is limited and may include estimated student loan(s). To help you pay the total cost, you may need to borrow a student loan.

Global Campus

You will be evaluated for summer financial aid if registered at least half-time and in at least one summer session. Half-time means 6 units for undergraduate students and students in a teaching credential program or 5 units for graduate students.

You will be evaluated with any remaining aid eligibility available since summer funding depends on the types and amounts of assistance used during fall and spring, as there are yearly maximums for students that cannot be exceeded.
