Summer Financial Aid

  • To be considered for summer financial aid, you must take classes at IUP in person or online.

    Financial aid for the summer term cannot exceed your cost of attendance for the term. The Financial Aid Office determines the cost based on enrollment, tuition, fees, room, board, books and supplies, and personal and miscellaneous expenses.

    Tuition waivers and scholarships for summer are included as part of your financial aid award.

    Most aid is not disbursed until after a student has entered half-time enrollment, and no earlier than mid-June. For example, if you take three credits in Summer I and three credits in Summer II, you will receive your aid after the Summer II drop/add period.

    Your Direct loan eligibility for the summer term is partially dependent upon the amount of Direct loan funds you borrowed during the previous fall and spring semesters, as you are subject to a maximum level of Direct loan borrowing each academic year and this borrowing limit depends on your grade level.

    In order to be considered for financial aid for the summer, you are required to be making Satisfactory Academic Progress (SAP). SAP is defined as earning at least 67 percent of the cumulative number of attempted credits and maintaining a cumulative grade point average of 2.0 (undergraduate) and 3.0 (graduate). You must also not exceed 150 percent of the normal period to complete your degree. If you do not meet one or more of these minimum criteria, you will receive notification from the Financial Aid Office. If you are not meeting these requirements and want to be considered for summer financial aid, you must complete the Satisfactory Academic Progress Appeal Form and have it approved for the summer term.
