The summer term is the start of the new aid year. Students who wish to receive financial aid during May or in the Summer 2021 term need to complete the 2021-22 FAFSA. An additional JMU Summer School Financial Aid Application will be available here when summer school registration begins.  During the summer term, we are only able to offer Federal Pell Grants and Federal Loans. Although you may qualify for Pell Grant funds with an enrollment of 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. Both applications need to be completed to apply for summer school financial aid. 

If you are only applying for a private educational loan for Summer 2021, you do not need to complete a 2021-22 FAFSA, but will still need to submit the JMU Summer School Financial Aid Application.
