Students taking courses during
winter session may potentially be eligible for additional financial aid funding
to assist with winter session costs. Financial aid for the
winter session is not guaranteed and may require action on the student’s part
for some aid programs, such as federal or private loans (see details below).
Students who are part-time,
undergraduate students in the spring 2017 semester (i.e., less than 12 credits
in the spring semester) who are otherwise eligible for the PHEAA State Grant or
the Pell Grant funding may be eligible for an increase grant(s). Review for the additional funding will be
completed by the Financial Aid Office at the completion of the drop/add period
for the spring semester.
If you are changing grade levels
after fall term, notify the Financial Aid Office for possible Direct Loan
Students who would like additional
funding in a PLUS or alternative loan may apply. Please indicate on the PLUS or
alternative loan application that this funding is for the period of January 23,
2017, through May 11, 2017, since all financial aid for winter term is processed
and paid to the student account in spring term, after drop/add ends.
For more on how to apply for these
loan programs, see the PLUS/Alternative
Loan section of our website.
Any financial aid awarded as a result of
attendance in the winter session will be paid to the student’s account during
the spring semester. Any credit balance resulting from a student’s
financial aid for spring exceeding their spring bill will automatically be
applied to winter session charges.
Students who enroll for winter courses, but do not plan to enroll for the spring semester, should consult with a financial aid representative to determine aid eligibility and actual disbursement dates.
