Financial Aid for Summer & Senior Guest Students

Are you planning on taking summer classes at Kent State Geauga and the Twinsburg Academic Center? 

Summer Financial Aid Information

  • Using grants, loans, or work-study in summer may affect your overall Cost of Attendance, adjusting eligibility for need-based aid.
  • Pell Grant eligibility included with summer classes extends to 150% maximum aid. (Ex: Full-time students in summer, fall, and spring still receive the full Pell Award amount each semester.)
  • Loan eligibility will be split into one-thirds to help cover tuition costs (as long as a student is taking six credit hours or more each semester, and student wishes to borrow aid).
