Students enrolled for Summer Session may be eligible for Federal Direct Loans to assist with their educational costs. Summer students must be matriculated in a degree program and enrolled for 6 or more credit hours. To apply, a student must complete:
- 2015-2016 Free Application for Federal Student Aid
- Summer 2016 Financial Aid Application (available in February 2016)
Summer Loans are disbursed to a student’s account no earlier than the first week of summer classes provided the student’s financial aid file is complete. The amount of loan obtained for summer study is included in the student’s maximum federal loan eligibility for the 2015-2016 academic year. For students borrowing additional funds to cover living expenses, a credit balance will not be available until a refund check is requested from the Bursar’s Office. Checks typically take 7-10 days to process.
Matriculated students registered for less than 6 credit hours may be able to secure a private summer loan through a participating bank or lender. Students should exhaust all other options prior to applying for a private loan.
For further information, please consult with a Financial Aid Counselor.
