Taking Summer Classes?
If you plan to use financial aid for your summer coursework, complete the steps below so we can prepare your summer financial aid award.
Complete a 2017–2018 FAFSA, using Hawkeye's FAFSA code 004595, if you have not done so already.
Verify and finalize any pending financial aid documents by checking My Hawkeye > Self-Service Menu > WebAdvisor for Students > Communication > My Documents.
Register for summer classes. You must be enrolled in at least six credit hours to be eligible for Federal Direct Loans and Federal Direct Parent (PLUS) loans.
After you have registered for your summer classes, print, complete, and submit the Summer Financial Aid Early Award Request form to the Financial Aid office. This form will be available once summer registration opens in March.
You must be a degree-seeking student at Hawkeye Community College to receive financial aid. Guest Students are not eligible for financial aid at Hawkeye.
Your Summer Financial Aid Award
When your award letter is ready for you to view in My Hawkeye, you will receive an award letter notification to your Hawkeye email.
You should receive an award notification email within two weeks of turning in the Early Award Request Form or within two weeks of registering for your summer classes after the summer semester has started. If you have not received your award notification and do not have any outstanding documents, contact the Financial Aid office.
If you were eligible to receive the Pell Grant during the Fall 2017/Spring 2018 semesters and you did not enroll full-time (12+ credit hours) during both semesters, you may be able to receive some Pell Grant funding during summer.
Hawkeye scholarships are not awarded for summer term.
If you have exhausted all of your financial aid eligibility during the fall and spring semesters, you may not receive an award for summer financial aid and will be responsible for full tuition payment unless you drop the classes for which you have registered before the tuition refund deadline.
What If My Course Schedule Changes?
Any changes made to your summer schedule could drastically affect your financial aid award even after you have received an award letter notification for your summer eligibility. It is your responsibility to notify the Financial Aid office.
You may also want to refer to the Financial Aid Impact when Withdrawing from Classes if you withdraw from a class after the summer financial aid lock date.
