Eligibility for Winter Financial Aid is based on information submitted on the FAFSA. In addition to the FAFSA, we require that you complete a Winter Session Financial Aid Application, which signals to us that you are interested in aid. The Winter Aid Application will be available ONLINE between November 23rd and December 15th.
Students who have used their maximum Stafford eligibility have the option to apply for an alternative loan. These are credit based loans in the student’s name. In most cases, a co signer would be required for approval. The credit decision is solely that of the lender you select. There is a preferred lender list to assist with the selection process. It is strongly encouraged to apply for your alternative loan during the designated dates between November 23rd and December 15th to ensure that your loans are factored for clearance and timely disbursement. Also, parents of Dependent students (as defined by the US Department of Education) may also borrow (if creditworthy) under the PLUS Loan Program.
Should you have any questions concerning the status of your application, feel free to contact your assigned Financial Aid Counselor through our Contact Us link. If you live on campus or reside in the area, we strongly recommend that you visit the Office of Financial Aid to address any questions you may have about your summer financial aid.
