Using Financial Aid During Winter Term by The Office of Student Financial Aid
Example: A student enrolls in 3 financial aid eligible credit hours during Winter Term and 9 financial aid eligible credit hours during spring. The student’s aid for the spring semester is based on a combined 12 credit hours, as long as the student remains enrolled in all credits.
- If aid is insufficient to cover the full balance owed a student will need to pay the remainder through other means.
- A student must be registered for both Winter Term and spring prior to any eligible aid authorizing for confirmation purposes.
- When confirming courses, a student will need to confirm both Spring 2019 and Spring I 2019 registration. Winter Term courses are considered Spring I registration. This information is important to reducing the number of students that are purged during Winter Term.
- If a student is currently on an academic plan for Satisfactory Academic Progress (SAP), the Office of Student Financial Aid will place a hold on the student’s account, preventing aid authorization/disbursement until fall grades and SAP have been evaluated.
- If a student is confirmed for Winter Term based on financial aid, and subsequently withdraws from spring semester courses, he or she will be responsible for the Winter Term billing.
- If considering dropping a Winter Term course after the beginning of the semester, a student should contact the Office of Student Financial Aid.
