Summer Financial Aid

Summer 2013 Financial Aid eligibility criteria

  • Students may not receive loans if they are ONLY registered for an intersession. The length of the session is too short and therefore does NOT qualify to receive a disbursement of funds. You may combine an intersession with a summer session.
  • Undergraduate students must enroll in a minimum of six (6) credit hours. Audited credit hours cannot be counted as eligible hours.
  • Graduate students must enroll in a minimum of three (3) credit hours. Please note that courses must be graduate credit courses. As a graduate student undergraduate courses will not meet degree requirements and cannot be included in meeting the minimum required hours. Audited credit hours cannot be counted as e ligible hours.
  • Failure to enroll in at least the minimum credit hours required will result in the cancellation of your financial aid.
  • Students whose admit date is Fall 2013 that are permitted to take classes during the Summer 2013 term will not qualify for summer funding.
