Summer Financial Aid

Students who attend the Summer term at Imperial Valley College may qualify for Financial Aid to help pay for colleges costs. In order to be considered for both the Federal Pell Grant and the California College Promise Grant (CCPG, formerly BOG Fee Waiver) you must complete and submit your 2018-19 FAFSA by June 30, 2019 if you have not done so already for the academic year.

California College Promise Grant (CCPG)

If you have not already applied for the 2018-19 CCPG you have two (2) methods of establishing eligibility:

1. Must submit and complete the 2018-19 Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) by June 30, 2019, or
2. Must submit and complete a California College Promise Grant (CCPG) application by July 25, 2019.

Please remember the CCPG will only pay enrollment fees for California residents and AB 540 eligible students who qualify. Other fees that apply for the term, such as Health Services Fees, Student Representation Fee, Parking Fees, Lab and Materials Fee will be the responsibility of the student.

Summer Pell Grant

Pell Grant eligible students can receive up to 150% of their scheduled Pell Grant award each year. 

If you enrolled full-time (12+ units) and received the full-time Pell Grant award for Fall 2018 and Spring 2019, you must enroll at least half-time (6+ units) in summer classes to receive a summer Pell Grant.

If you enrolled part-time Fall 2018 or Spring 2019, there is no minimum unit requirement to receive a summer Pell Grant (unless required by your EFC).  You can use the remainder of your annual Pell Grant amount during summer with no minimum unit requirement.

Your Estimated Family Contribution (EFC) as determined by the U.S. Dept. of Education and your enrollment status for the Summer term will determine your summer award. Summer awards will be posted after registration.

Enrollment status is determined by the number of enrolled units:

 Enrollment Status  Units
 3/4-time  9 (max for Summer)
 1/2-time  6 to 8.5
 Less than 1/2-time  .5 to 5.5


Summer 2019 Disbursement Schedule

In addition, at the end of Spring 2019, we will conduct an evaluation of your academic progress and you must be identified as maintaining Satisfactory Academic Progress standard (SAP) to be determined eligible for a Summer Pell Grant.
