Summer Aid

Summer classes offer Queens College students the unique opportunity to advance the pace along their degree track.

We encourage you to read and follow the guidelines below for summer financial aid for those attending Queens College. The special summer information on this page supplements standard eligibility criteria for each program.

File all aid applications early and follow the Bursar's instructions regarding bill due dates and payment options.

TAP

TAP for Summer 2018 is based on the 2018-2019 TAP application. To be considered for summer TAP, students must add QC TAP code (1416) to the summer field on the application.

To be eligible for TAP for summer sessions:

  • Students must have been registered at Queens College for both the fall and spring semesters prior to the summer session (Fall 2017 and Spring 2018).
  • Students must have earned a minimum of 24 credits applicable to the degree during the prior two semesters and have been full-time in the spring semester immediately prior to the summer.
  • Students must formally declare their major with the Registrar's Office before summer classes begin if they will have 60 credits towards their degree.

Students enrolled for 12 or more credits in Sessions 4W1 (Summer 1 Short), 4W2 (Summer 2 Short), and/or 6W2 (Summer 2 Long) will use a full-semester award, and those enrolled for 6 to 11 credits will use half a semester's TAP eligibility.

Students on permit to QC can be certified for TAP only at their home school within New York State.

These requirements are in addition to the standard eligibility requirements for the TAP program.

Pell

Pell-eligible students may receive a summer Pell award from either the 2017-2018 or 2018-2019 academic year. Year-round Pell allows students to receive up to 150 percent of a regular grant award over the course of the academic year so that students can continue taking classes in the summer and finish their degrees faster than they would otherwise. 

In order to be eligible for year-round Pell, you must be registered for at least 6 credits, make Satisfactory Academic Progress​ (SAP), and meet all other eligibility requirements to receive a summer Pell award. Make sure you have completed a 2017-2018 and 2018-2019 FAFSA.  

 

Direct Loan

Direct Loan eligibility for summer is based on your new FAFSA application for the current fiscal year. After you file the FAFSA and TAP applications, and you have cleared any problems and edits, a Direct Loan Request Form must be completed via CUNYfirst. See our Direct Loan web page or ask us about requirements for filing the direct loan master promissory note on the web before submitting the direct loan request.
Students must be matriculated in a degree program and registered for at least 6 credits in combined Summer I/Summer II or Summer II only. A 2.0 cumulative GPA is required for undergraduates after 30 credits; a 3.0 is required for graduate students. You can file the Direct Loan for summer starting in June. 

Percy E. Sutton SEEK program

A SEEK student is allowed ten (10) semesters of opportunity program eligibility. In addition, all special program students are allowed one Immersion and two regular summer semesters. The maximum amount given to students for books and supplies shall be separately determined for the regular academic year and for summer session attendance based on available funding.

Federal Work-Study (FWS)

Students awarded FWS for the 2018-2019 Academic Year may use their awards during Summer 2018 if they accept placement off campus in a community service job. Please come to the Office of Financial Aid Services for an application. You must bring a resume with you and be registered for 6 credits in Summer 2018 and/or Fall 2018. Students entering Queens College for the first time in Fall 2018 are not eligible for summer FWS.
