8 Week Requirement for Summer PA State Grant

PA residents must be enrolled half-time for at least 8 weeks during the Summer Sessions to be eligible for the Summer PA State Grant.

Due to the 8 week requirement, most first-year students enrolled for summer are ineligible for the Summer PA State Grant.

Summer sessions may be combined to meet the eight week requirements. At University Park, the only feasible combinations are Maymester + Summer II (10 weeks) and Summer I + Summer II (12 weeks).

Current students who wish to be considered for the grant must complete the following two-step process:

    1. Complete the Summer PA State Grant application on eLion
    2. Submit the Summer PA State Grant application on the PHEAA website by August 15

Grants are credited to student accounts at the end of July. Students will not receive this money at the beginning of summer.
