Summer Benefits:

Year Round Pell

Effective July 2017, the federal government implemented the Year-Round Pell Grant program. This means Pell Grant funds can be used to cover a portion of the cost of summer courses. To take advantage of this, you must be eligible during the current academic year for the Pell Grant and take a minimum of six units. These can all be taken in one summer session or you can take three units in each session. If you have questions on whether you are eligible to use the Pell Grant in the summer or if it is the right financial decision for you, go meet with a drop-in financial aid counselor.

Student Potential Saving
Summer sessions is an excellent opportunity to facilitate on time graduation. The living expenses and tuitions for an extra semester outweigh the cost of a full-loaded Summer session not to mention about the income that you may earn with your new degree.

Faster Degree Completion
Academic credits earned during Summer Session may be used towards the completion of your SJSU bachelor's or master's degree.
