Summer Financial Aid

~ What You Should Know ~

Summer financial aid is awarded from the 2011-2012 FAFSA application and is considered part of the 2011-2012 academic year at MSU Billings.

If you’ve already been awarded financial aid through MSU-Billings during the current aid year (2011-2012):

  • Once you’ve registered for ALL your summer credits, give 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 2012, you need to have a 2012-2013 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
