  • You must be making ‘Good’ or ‘Warning’ Satisfactory Academic Progress, or successfully complete the SAP Appeal Process.

Disbursement of Federal Pell Grant and Federal SEOG

To receive Summer Federal SEOG, you must be Pell Grant eligible. If your summer enrollment is split between summer sessions that start on different dates, the Office of Student Financial Aid will only disburse the Federal Pell Grant/SEOG portion for your coursework that has already begun. Disbursement is made no earlier than 7 days prior to the first day of class for that term. 

Disbursement of Student Loan Proceeds

You may not receive aid from multiple institutions during the same enrollment period (Summer 2018).  Your summer loan eligibility is affected by federal loan money awarded at TAMUK/TAMU-SA or another institution during the aid year. If you maximized the receipt of Federal Direct Loan eligibility during the academic year, you may not be eligible for additional funding. Dropping below half-time will result in cancellation of your Summer Loan award. Disbursement will occur once enrollment has been certified for half-time status (6 credits for undergraduate students and 4.5 credits for Graduate level students).
