Taking summer classes is a great way to get ahead, to get back on track toward earning your degree or to lighten your workload for coming semesters.


And now, thanks to changes in federal regulations, the Pell grant is available all year round. This means you may have access to additional funding for summer classes. Contact financial aid to learn more.



Registration is now open. Register today!


Financial Aid, Scholarships and On-campus Employment

The Pell grant is now available year-round, meaning you may qualify for additional funding. Contact financial aid to learn if you are eligible.

Students may also qualify for the Summer Bridge Scholarship. Learn more here.

Students with remaining 2017-18 financial aid may use it on summer semester. See financial aid for more information.

Students taking at least three contact hours in the summer may work on campus. View student employment opportunities here.

Discounted Housing

SMC students who take at least six contact hours during the summer are eligible to live in housing for the summer semester for only $620. Guest students who take at least six contact hours may live in housing for only $1,000.
