At Summit College, we appreciate that every student’s climb is different, so our financial aid packages offer individualized and personal support. And that’s what we’re here for. To support your climb, in any form it may take.

There are several forms of financial aid: loans, grants, scholarships, and Work-Study, for example. Many financial aid awards include a combination of these different types of aid. Our financial aid counselors can help you weigh the pros and cons of each option and choose the best possible package for your education.

Summit College accepts several methods of payment and participates in the following federally sponsored financial aid loan and grant programs:

  • Federal Direct Subsidized Loan
  • Federal Direct Unsubsidized Loan
  • Federal Direct PLUS Loan
  • Federal Pell Grant
  • Federal Supplemental Educational Opportunity Grant (FSEOG).

These grants and loans are available to any student who qualifies under the specific requirements for each program. You can find general information on these programs on our Types of Financial Aid page.


There are several simple steps to take as you apply for financial aid:

  • Apply & Enroll in Summit College. Before receiving financial aid, you must first be admitted to one of our programs, such as those in allied health, business, or trade and technical fields.
  • Once you are admitted, you will be scheduled to meet with the Financial Aid Department for pre-qualification. There you will learn about all the options, obligations, and details of financing arrangements associated with being a responsible student loan borrower.
  • Fill out the FAFSA. Our six-digit Federal School Code is 031081. You can use this code to identify Summit College in government databases and on websites, such as, for the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). The site is used for federal student aid for nearly every college in the nation.
  • To stay eligible for financial aid, maintain satisfactory progress in your program of study and attend classes throughout your enrollment.
