Summer Aid

The deadline to apply for 2020 Summer Aid is Friday, April 24, 2020 at 4:00 PM EDT

This information is for students who plan to enroll in courses during the summer term and wish to receive financial aid to help cover education expenses. UMB is enhancing the way students receive financial aid for the summer term. We are moving away from the paper application to a more efficient method. The Office of Student Financial Assistance will send an email on April 12th asking students if they intend to enroll in Summer Semester courses. The email will ask you to confirm your intent via a reply. Once students confirm their attendance the Financial Aid office will begin to process Summer Financial Aid awards. Financial Aid awards will be available to view via SURFS beginning the 1st week of May. For questions about the financial aid process, please email

Summer financial aid can include federal work study (all students), alternative loans (undergraduate students), and/or Federal Graduate PLUS loans (graduate students).  No institutional funds will be awarded.  Students will receive notification of awards via their UMB campus e-mail address.

Please read the following information and submit the appropriate request form(s). 

  • Summer Study Abroad/Visiting Student - Deadline April 24th
    Students studying at another institution during the summer and who have permission from their school/program to transfer those credits to UMB may email their counselor to apply.
