Summer Disbursements of State Scholarships

A Summer Session scholarship disbursement yields a potential for those eligible students who demonstrate they are on an accelerated track to graduation to earn a degree at a faster pace than on a traditional academic calendar. The availability of Summer awards allows for a decreased time-to-degree alternative, which helps students meet their educational goals at lower costs.
