Submit a Summer Financial Aid Application

  • In order for us to award you a scholarship of any amount this summer, or if you wish to apply for any other funds through the university’s financial aid office, you need to fill out the summer financial aid application.
  • The summer financial aid application will become available late March, but MAKE SURE YOUR SUMMER COURSE PLANS ARE FINAL BEFORE SUBMITTING.
    You must give accurate information for the program you are attending, or your scholarship will never pay out and with no direct way of checking why not.
  • The main reason we are asking you to do so is NOT to request funding, but rather to get you into the FA office’s system so that we can disburse the scholarship funds we have already committed to you via your bursar’s account. It is the same form, however, that is used to request other forms of scholarship, so you can do that, if you like, at the same time.
  • IMPORTANT: You must be taking at least 6 hours/credits over the summer in order to be eligible for many forms of financial aid, such as grants and loans, but there is no minimum for the type of scholarships provided by our program.

Completing the form:

  • Filling out this form incorrectly is the MOST COMMON CAUSE of scholarship delays. Since there is no way to access your submission, TAKE SCREEN SHOTS so we can troubleshoot any missing scholarships.
  1. Log in to my.olemiss.edu.
  2. Search for “Summer Financial Aid Application”
  3. Enter the CORRECT academic year (this will be the current year and NOT the upcoming fall-spring sequence)
  4. Enter the form as an undergraduate; not a graduate student.
  5. TAKE A FULL PAGE SCREEN SHOT (or opt to print and then save as PDF)
  6. Next Page: Complete the “checklist” (only those that apply).
  7. Check the bottom box:
    “I have read and understand the Summer School Notice.”
    Despite the suggestion on the application, you DO NOT NEED TO REGISTER for summer classes. The Chinese Flagship Program registers all its (applicable) students for their summer classes, but not until later in Spring, when all administrative steps are complete for our office and for Study Abroad. Note that YOU DO NOT NEED to fill out a FAFSA for summer in order to receive scholarship funding from OUR program. If you are hoping to receive loans or OTHER forms of financial aid, however, you DO need to complete this extra FAFSA. Apart from loans, financial aid for the summer is rather limited. See the “Tuition Charge Notification” section for more information on the availability of summer scholarships.

    • [_] (add up all summer hour credits) TOTAL NUMBER OF CREDIT HOURS YOU WILL COMPLETE DURING THE SUMMER TERMS (if this number does not match your enrollment, your scholarship will NOT PAY OUT!!  If you are taking any other courses through Ole Miss this summer, make sure to include them accurately in this section)

Why so many screen shots? You will not be able to access your submission in the future, so if a problem arises, this will help greatly in finding the cause.
