Shannon Miles, Assistant Director of Financial Aid is the Veterans' Services Counselor in the Office of Scholarships & Financial Aid at UNCW. You may contact her at 910.962.3177.
Created to aid and inform veteran students of all aspects of veteran educational benefits at UNCW.
All students who wish to receive financial aid for Summer School must have completed the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) or Renewal FAFSA. In addition to the FAFSA, a separate "UNCW Summer School Application" must be completed. Visiting students must apply through their home institution to receive financial aid for summer attendance to UNCW. Please visit Office of Scholarships and Financial Aid for in-depth information on applying for and receiving financial aid.
Limited financial aid is available for students attending Summer School at UNCW. Most students can only receive Federal Stafford Loans and Federal Pell Grants based on remaining eligibility from the previous academic year. PLUS loans are also available.
Full- time status for undergraduates in the summer is 12 credit hours (combined total from Summer I and Summer II). Graduate students must be enrolled for 9 credit hours (combined total from Summer I and Summer II) to be considered full-time. Graduate students who are taking thesis hours or are teaching assistants or research assistants are also considered full-time. Students must be enrolled at least half-time to be eligible for the Federal Stafford & PLUS Loan Programs.
Fund disbursement will occur when you have begun attending enough hours to be considered half time. For example, funds for a student with 3 hours in the first summer session and 3 hours in the second summer session will be disbursed when classes start for the second summer session. This means that you may need to plan to pay for books and receive your reimbursement when financial aid can be paid.
Summer School coursework is subject to the Satisfactory Academic Progress Policy for Financial Aid Eligibility detailed in the Undergraduate and Graduate Catalogues.
