Summer is part of the 16-17 year for financial aid purposes. Students will need to complete a one page Summer Application available on moraine park.edu and at Student Services (all campuses) starting when registration opens. The form is not available sooner as the student needs to indicate the classes they are registered in.
We will request that the students complete and return the Summer Application before April 18, 2017 to ensure processing for the May 5, 2017 tuition due date.
What types of aid may be available for Summer?
Some student’s Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) applications are selected for verification. Verification is the process by which the Financial Aid Office is required to compare the information on the financial aid application with certain documents provided by the student to verify the accuracy of the information on the FAFSA.
The Moraine Park Financial Aid Office will send any students in this situation a letter and a few forms to complete and return.
Scholarships are free money that does not need to be paid back. Moraine Park lists scholarship opportunities on our website. Check out current opportunities here: http://www.morainepark.edu/financial-aid/scholarships/
