Summer loan, work study eligibility to change at Northwestern

March 11, 2009

In order for undergraduate students at Northwestern Oklahoma State University to be eligible for summer loans and work study, students attending summer classes will have to be enrolled in at least six credit hours.

In past years, students were eligible for loans and work study while being enrolled in just three hours. For undergraduate students enrolled in classes at more than one school, six hours of total enrollment will be required.

Pell grant eligibility will be based on either the 2008-2009 or the 2009-2010 Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). Some recent changes in the administration of Title IV aid have made pell grants available during the summer semesters beginning with the 2009-2010 award year. Pell grants awarded based on 2009-2010 eligibility will be paid after July 1.

“It is important to file the 2009-2010 FAFSA by April 15,” Irala Magee, financial aid director, said. “This will allow the financial aid office time to determine eligibility for all possible sources of summer aid.”

Once students are enrolled for summer classes, they must fill out a summer data form in the financial aid office at any of Northwestern’s campuses in Alva, Enid or Woodward, or at the University Learning Center in Ponca City. The form also can be printed by visiting and clicking on summer data form.
