Financial aid

  • Summer aid

    Financial aid for the summer is available for those students who are enrolled at least half-time (6 credits for undergraduate and teacher certification students; 3 credits for graduate students). However, for most students, funding is typically limited to loan funds, Pell Grant, and/or the State Work Study Program.

    Note: Students who plan to enroll only in four-week classes offered from May 16 to June 24 may not be eligible to receive financial aid. For more information please contact the Student Financial Services Center.

    To receive financial aid for summer, students must complete both the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) and the Saint Martin's University Summer Financial Aid application. This must be done before a request for financial aid will be processed.

    For more information, contact the Office of Student Financial Services at 360-438-4397 or via email.
