E-Term Tuition and Financial Aid

Financial assistance for E-Term (summer) is limited to Federal Direct Loans for students, private loans including the Federal Direct PLUS loan for parents, as well as Federal Pell Grants and Global Scholarships.  The Subsidized / Unsubsidized Federal loans have annual limits that cannot be exceeded.  It is important to remember that you must not have borrowed the full amount of the Subsidized / Unsubsidized Federal Direct loans during the A22 – D23 term academic period.  If a student borrowed the full amount of their eligibility during the fall 2022 through spring semesters 2023 they will not be eligible to borrow additional federal funding except the PLUS loan, for the summer (E23 Term) academic period.
