Your maximum financial aid eligibility will be offered to you. The amount of summer financial aid that can be offered to you is dependent on how much financial aid you have already received during the fall and spring semesters.

You will be notified of your summer financial aid offer. You may accept or decline your financial aid in KSIS.

Enrollment requirements

You must be enrolled at least half-time to be eligible for a federal student loan. Half-time status is defined as:

  • 6 credit hours for Undergraduate students.
  • 3 credit hours for Graduate students.
  • 5 credit hours for Veterinary Medicine students.

Effects of enrollment changes

If your summer enrollment changes after your summer financial aid has already been disbursed, federal regulations may require the University to bill you for all or a portion of the summer financial aid that you already received. Consequently, we urge you to consult with our office before making any summer enrollment changes.
