TAHLEQUAH – Beginning with the summer 2018 semester, Northeastern State University students who enroll in summer courses may receive additional annual funding via the Pell Grant.

The current maximum federal Pell Grant for an eligible student is $5,920 per academic year, unless enrolled for summer. With this increase, students can receive up to 150 percent of their Pell award for each academic year.

NSU Assistant Vice President of Enrollment Danny Mabery said students can take advantage of the summer Pell program to continue their education during the summer months to ensure they complete 30 credit hours each year.

“Summer Pell can help decrease the amount of time students’ spend obtaining a degree, allowing them to start their careers quicker,” Mabery said.

To be eligible for a summer Pell Grant, students need to have completed a 2017-18 Free Application for Federal Student Aid, be Pell Grant eligible, meet Satisfactory Academic Progress and have lifetime Pell Grant eligibility remaining. In most cases, students must be enrolled in six or more credits during the summer semester.

NSU summer classes begin May 7.
