Students requesting federal loans must be registered at least half-time (Undergraduate level students need to be enrolled for at least 6 credit hours and Graduate and Professional level students need to be enrolled for at least 3 credit hours to be considered for federal loans)
Students seeking Summer aid must have a valid FAFSA on file with our office and all necessary requirements complete.
Allow at least two weeks for processing from the date of your Request for Summer Financial Aid if you are properly registered and have a valid FAFSA on file in our office.
It is your responsibility, as a student, to review and understand the published Financial Aid Academic Progress standards. Failure to meet these standards will result in immediate suspension of your financial aid. In rare instances, your aid can be removed after it is disbursed.
Disbursement of Summer financial aid will not occur until the start of the class that represents the minimum course load requirement. EXAMPLE: an Undergraduate who takes a 3 hour class which starts on May 21st and takes another 3 hour class which starts on July 2nd will not receive a disbursement of loan funds until July 2nd. Your disbursement date will depend upon your start date for the minimum course load required for your type of aid. (Verification of enrollment at the end of add/drop may need to be completed prior to disbursement of aid for some students)
Students applying for Federal Direct “Stafford” Student Loans (subsidized and unsubsidized) for Summer may only borrow the remaining portion of their annual eligibility for 2013-2014 (check STAR to see what you have used and compare with the annual eligibility chart below:
