Summer School and Degree Completion Financial Aid Programs

Degree Completion—Summer School

The goal of WSU funded summer school is to enhance progress toward a degree, and provide the student the opportunity to complete his or her degree at the same time eligibility is completed at Washington State University. Review of applications will begin mid-April. To assure serious consideration and timely notification, summer school applications must be submitted no later than the Friday after registration opens for summer school.

NOTE: If a student-athlete quits his/her team with the intent to transfer to another institution or if his/her scholarship will not be renewed for the upcoming year, the summer school financial aid agreement will become null and void immediately.

Summer school applications are available in the Academic Services Office, Bohler Athletic Complex 285, beginning the first Monday in March.

Options for Student-Athletes not Receiving Athletics Summer School Financial Aid

Failure to Meet Summer School Contractual Agreement

Once summer athletics aid is authorized, student-athletes must attend class, access services if noted in the contract, and work to earn “C” and above grades. If this expectation is not met, aid may be stopped immediately and may be terminated for the remainder of the summer. Additionally, the Athletics Department reserves the right to bill student-athletes for any “W’s” or “F’s” earned during the summer session.
