Summer Financial Aid

Summer financial aid is awarded from the current aid year’s FAFSA (Free Application for Federal Student Aid) and is considered part of the current academic year at Montana State University Billings (MSUB).

If you’ve already been awarded financial aid through MSUB during the current aid year:


  • Once you’ve registered for ALL your summer credits, please submit a copy of your summer schedule to the financial aid office
  • Make note on the schedule if you are interested in loans, work study, or both.  We will first attempt to award grants but funding is limited

**If you request work study for summer semester, you need to have the next years aid year’s FAFSA on file.

  • Available summer funding depends on the types and amount of assistance used during fall and spring
  • Once you’ve been awarded, you’ll receive an email indicating you have a revised award letter available through your student secure log-in
  • You do NOT need to respond to the email or the award
  • Notify our office immediately if you do NOT want any portion of the summer aid listed
