Summer Financial Aid

This summer, you may be eligible to receive a Pell Grant for Summer 2019 even if you received a full grant for fall and spring. Year-round Pell Grant allows eligible students to receive a third disbursement of funds for the summer term. If you need more money to attend classes this summer, this is a great option for you!

Eligibility Requirements

  • Must be fully admitted to a UA Little Rock degree program
  • Must be enrolled at least half-time during the summer (a minimum of 6 hours)
    • If you are enrolled less than half-time during the summer term and you did not use all of your Pell Grant eligibility during the current academic year (Fall 2018-Spring 2019), you may qualify to receive a summer Pell award
  • Cannot be in default on a student loan
  • Must be registered in summer classes before you can submit a Summer Financial Aid Request
  • All required documents (tax forms, verification worksheet, etc.) must be complete
