Enrolled in Summer semester...When do they usually receive them? I have been a student for a few years but I've never taken classes in the summer before and as I had to pay for all my books and such up front for this semester I'm just wondering for those who have been students during this semester before when do the grants usually end up being issued to students?

As I ended up putting my books onto my credit card as necessity sometimes dictates and APR can be a pain in the rear over time. I'm just wondering how long it will likely be before I can pay that balance back.

Thanks to any who are kind and knowledgeable enough to respond!=)
sorry

You won't get paid for the summer classes if you took classes in the fall and spring. You are only allowed so much money a year and if you don't use it all you get in refunds in the fall and spring. It doesn't allow for summer semester.

They do not grant any scholarships and such for the summer semester. But if you have any money from Pell left, they usually send you a check in early August. That's the way it was when I was there. I graduated in May 2010.

I wasn't enrolled last year.

I had to take a full-time job instead due to personal reasons.

And it says I have pending aid for summer / fall / spring all 3, though its substantially less for the last semester..so I believe some of this information may be misleading.

Early august is my prediction as well for when I should see any money If I'll be receiving it.
