Summer Financial Aid

All students who are enrolled for summer and have completed a 2015-2016 FAFSA will be considered for federal aid. Students will be awarded federal aid for which they are eligible. If awarded federal loans, the student must go to the myGate account to accept the amount of loans needed for the summer term (and complete the promissory note and entrance counseling if not already done so). If you have any questions regarding the process or your award, please contact our office at 270-809-2546 or by email at

Refer to the Loan Eligibility Chart to determine if you are eligible for loans in the summer.
