Summer Financial Aid
Summer financial aid eligibility is based upon how many classes you took in Fall & Spring as well as how much financial aid you received for those semesters.
TIPS FOR DETERMINING SUMMER FINANCIAL AID ELIGIBILITY:
1- Summer tuition for most classes is higher and financial aid awards may not cover your full balance. Remember, you will have other costs such as books, fees and supplies.
2- If you were full time in both fall and spring, you should NOT be eligible for any grants.
3- If you received the yearly maximum loan limits, you will NOT be eligible for any student loans. If you are eligible for loans you will need to be enrolled in at least 6 credits during summer.
Yearly loan limits are stated below:
a. Dependent students – $5500-Freshman, $6500-Sophmore
b. Independent students- $9500-Freshman, $10500-Sophmore
SUMMER APPLICATION PROCESS
1- Complete and turn in a Summer 2013 Application to the Financial Aid Office. Deadline is May 10 to be notified prior to the summer tuition payment deadline on May 17.
2- You will be notified within approximately 2 weeks by an email to your UH portal. If you are not eligible or do not make the May 10 deadline, you will be responsible to pay for your summer charges or your registered classes may be purged.
3- No funds will be released until May 24 at the earliest. Your spring 2013 grades will be reviewed prior to release of summer funds.
4- If you are suspended because of your spring 2013 grades, your summer financial aid will be cancelled.
5- If your enrollment changes, you must notify our office. Your eligibility may change and you may owe back funds.
