Q: How do I get summer financial aid if I am attending any of the Summer terms (Maymester, Summer I, Summer II)?

Answer:

Students who attended TJC during the Fall and Spring semester and received financial aid for the Fall and Spring terms need to register for ALL of their Summer classes in any summer term by the final funding date (generally in early June). The financial aid office will then determine eligibility for grant funding and post the award or a notice of ineligibility on Apache Access.

Students who are attending TJC for the first time during the summer or those who have not already completed the FAFSA, should complete the entire FAFSA process and should do so at least one month prior to the Summer terms payment due date. Once the FAFSA process has been complete, students need to register for ALL of their Summer classes in any summer term by the final funding date (generally in early June). The financial aid office will then determine eligibility for grant funding and post the award or a notice of ineligibility on Apache Access.

Students who are only loan eligible MUST complete a loan request form to be considered for a loan award during the summer (many students have used all of their loans if they received them during the Fall and Spring semesters).  Loan awards or a notice of ineligibility will be posted to Apache Access.
