The summer term is the start of the new aid year. Students who wish to receive financial aid during May or in the Summer 2022 term need to complete the 2022-23 FAFSA and a JMU Summer Financial Aid Application.  During the summer term, we are only able to offer Federal Pell Grants and Federal Direct Loans. Although you may qualify for Pell Grant funds with an enrollment of fewer than 6 credit hours, most aid, including student loans, require you to enroll for at least 6 financial aid eligible credit hours during summer to be eligible.

If you are only applying for a private educational loan for Summer 2022, you do not need to complete a 2022-23 FAFSA, but will still need to submit the JMU Summer Financial Aid Application.
