Financial Aid Policy Changes
Stay up to date on all important changes to the University of Idaho's Financial Aid Policies and the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA).
Good news! We received guidance from the Department of Education that we can accept signed copies of the federal tax return to complete income verification requirements.
Summer Session Pell Grant Funds
Pell Grant eligible undergraduate students who have used their full-time allocations of Pell grant funding for Fall and Spring semesters may be eligible for Pell grant funds for the summer session. To receive this additional Pell Grant funding for the summer session, students must be enrolled in at least 6 credit hours for summer session (in addition to the normal Pell Grant requirements) and complete a summer financial aid application on VandalWeb. Additional Pell Grant received for the summer session counts towards a student’s lifetime Pell Grant eligibility.
The FAFSA is currently available for the 2019-20 academic year, and becomes available Oct. 1 for the 2020-21 academic year.
