    In order to receive federal loans for summer school you must be enrolled at least half-time (5 credits for graduates).

    Repayment Options

    Eligibility
    Once your eligibility has been determined, you will receive an e-mail at your campus e-mail address, informing you that your financial aid award is available online in WINGS. Follow the instructions for accepting your award. Failure to do so will result in your financial aid award being cancelled.

    Graduate students typically receive Federal Direct Loans as the form of financial aid.  The Direct Loan maximum per year is $20,500.  The financial aid year starts with the summer session and ends with the spring session.   

    When your program cost of attendance exceeds the Direct Loan maximum, there are additional loan options. Graduate students can apply for the Federal Graduate PLUS loan or private alternative student loans.  Each type of loan has a section on this website that tells more information and how to apply.  The maximum you can borrow in either of these loans is the difference between your cost of attendance and the other aid you are receiving.  This loan maximum will be listed on your award letter as "Your Other Loan Eligibility - G".

    Since each program of study has its own tuition costs and periods of enrollment, examples can be found on the individual pages.

    Medical Dosimetry
    This cost of attendance allowance is not the amount you will be charged. It is the amount of aid eligibility based on tuition and an allowance for living expenses.
    If you are receiving any educational benefits (scholarships, employee tuition reimbursement, Military benefits, etc.) please complete our scholarship and resource notification form or report it using the WINGS student center online “Report Other Financial Aid” link. These benefits will reduce the amount of loans you are offered.
