Please be aware that there is no financial aid posted to the Winter Term.

It is the student's responsibility to make payment out of pocket or once their Spring refund is received. If you are depending on financial aid to pay for these classes, you may go online and request an Emergency Loan to make payment until you receive your financial aid.

Scholarships and Financial Aid Information
Q. Can I apply for financial aid for the winter term?
Answer: No, financial aid is not available for the winter mini-session. You may, however, apply for an emergency loan and book loan to cover the cost of tuition and fees and the purchase of books.
Please refer to the Payment Information section above for more information.
Q. Will I be responsible for the emergency loan and book loan if I am not eligible for financial aid in the spring?
Answer: Yes, you will be responsible for the amount owed if you are no longer eligible to receive financial aid for Spring 2012.
Q. What may cause me to be ineligible to receive my spring financial aid?
Answer: Some reasons for losing financial aid eligibility for Spring 2012 include but are not limited to:
- Not meeting the terms of satisfactory academic progress at the end of the Fall 2011 semester if you were on financial aid probation.
- New information received from the Department of Education now showing you ineligible to receive aid.
Q. Will financial aid for spring cover the emergency loan and book loan for the winter term?
Answer: Financial aid for Spring 2012 may cover the emergency loan and book loan for the winter mini-session given that you
- complete the course attempted for the winter-session
- remain eligible to receive financial aid for spring
- have enough financial aid available to cover both the winter mini-session and spring charges
Remember – you will have to make the payment for these Winter loans yourself once your spring refund is received.
Q. How will the hours for the winter term be counted for financial aid?
Answer: The hours completed for the winter mini-session will be added to spring registration. If your financial aid for spring was processed based on less than full-time enrollment and you attend the winter mini-session you may be eligible for additional aid. You will need to complete a Revision Request Form so financial aid can determine if you should receive more funds based on the additional 3 hours completed during the winter mini-session. If you were processed based on full-time enrollment and attend the winter mini-session, there will be no additional aid eligibility.
