Summer Financial Aid Refunds

Students attending a second summer session or a study abroad trip for summer that are expecting a financial aid refund will receive the funds 7-10 days prior to their first day of class. We encourage students to enroll in direct deposit, which can be done at

Since students who are studying abroad often need to purchase their airfare in advance we offer short term loans in our office. Loans up to $450 for undergraduate students can be processed online through StuInfo. We can approve amounts higher than this for airfare, but students will need to apply in-person. Students must be registered to be eligible and loans are due 60 days after receiving the loan. Students must have a means of repayment to receive the loan.

Summer Enrollment and Financial Aid

During summer semester undergraduate students must be enrolled in at least 6 credits to qualify for most financial aid programs. We look at the total number of credits a student is enrolled in at any time during summer. Students could be in 6 credits in one summer session or they could take 3 in the first session, then 3 in the second session to qualify.
