Summer PROMISE Award

Summer PROMISE Awards

To be eligible for a summer award, a student must be academically eligible for scholarship continuation at the end of the spring semester preceding the summer that assistance is requested.

  • Any summer award under this provision is dependent upon the availability of funds as determined by the Policy Commission.

  • Priority for summer awards will be based on class rank with the highest priority given to students closest to graduation.

Students, other than those graduating at the end of the summer or fall term of enrollment, must be enrolled for at least 12 credit hours.

  • The hours requirement can be waived for students willing to utilize a semester of eligibility towards their maximum number of semesters of eligibility.

  • To do so, students must submit a signed letter requesting special consideration and stating they are aware they are using a semester of eligibility towards their maximum number of eligible semesters.

  • Students graduating at the end of the summer term or fall term are only required to enroll for a minimum of 6 credit hours.

A summer award counts as a semester of utilization toward the maximum number of available semesters.

To be eligible for a summer award a student must submit an application by the deadline.

Summer awards will not be made until early June; students with payment due before that time may be responsible for payment.
