How Do I Apply?

If you already filed a 2013/2014 FAFSA (Free Application for Federal Student Aid), simply register for summer classes. We will automatically package you for summer aid if you are eligible. There is no additional application for summer.

What If I Haven’t Filed My 2013/2014 FAFSA?

It is not too late to file the 2013/2014 FAFSA. The 2013/2014 can be completed through June 30, 2014. However, don’t delay. File now to ensure you get the most that you can.

How Do I Know If I Have Aid For Summer?

Summer eligibility is determined by the amount of aid you received during the academic year.

When Can I See My Summer Aid?

Summer awards will appear on the financial aid accounts of enrolled students the last week of March.

When Will I Get My Summer Money?

Students who are signed up for direct deposit, enrolled in Summer I, and who have summer aid in excess of their tuition and fees could receive their financial aid refund as early May 22, 2014.
IMPORTANT:
Aid begins crediting bursar accounts on May 19. The bursar’s office then requests refunds. Direct Deposit takes 2-3 business days. Checks take 7-10 business days. Aid cannot disburse until 10 days before the student’s first day of classes. Students only enrolled in courses beginning after May 29 will not have aid credit their bursar account on May 19.

How do I get my books in summer?

You can charge up to $600 of books to your Ucard, regardless of whether or not you have financial aid.  For more information, click here: http://www.ius.edu/ucard/use-your-ucard/bookstore.html

How do I know if I have remaining loan eligibility?

Summer eligibility is determined by the amount of aid you received during the academic year. Stafford loan eligibility is based on your class level and the corresponding annual borrowing limits.
You can determine the amount of your loan eligibility by doing a few simple calculations.
  1. View the Stafford Loan Limits (below):
    1. Note your current 'Class Standing' (ex. Freshman, Sophomore, etc.)
    2. Combine the amount of 'Sub/Unsub Amount Combination' with the 'Additional Unsubsidized Independent Student' if you were not required to use parental information on the FAFSA. If your parent information was required on the FAFSA, combine the amount of 'Sub/Unsub Amount Combination' with the 'Additional Unsubsidized Dependent Student'. You will use this amount to determine the maximum amount of Stafford loan you can receive per year.
  2. Go to OneStart and view 'My Financial Aid Account Summary' within your Financial Aid section.
  3. View your 'Academic Year Totals'
  4. Make note of your 'Accepted Total' (this is the amount you should have already received)
  5. Subtract the amount accepted from your total eligibility.
Please note, if your class standing changes, your total eligibility may change.

Will I be eligible for the Federal Pell Grant in the summer?

The amount of Federal Pell Grant you may be eligible to receive in the summer session depends on a few factors.  If you did not attend full time in both the fall and spring semesters (at IU Southeast or another institution), you most likely will have Pell Grant eligibility left for the summer session(s).  The amount that you may receive for summer will be dependent on the amount of Pell Grant you have remaining and the number of credit hours in which you enroll.   

If your initial summer enrollment is before the Summer I census date, May 16, 2014, your Federal Pell Grant will be calculated based on the number of hours in which you are enrolled on May 16, 2013.  If you add classes after May 16 you will not receive an increase in your Federal Pell Grant.  If your initial enrollment is after May 16, 2013 your Federal Pell Grant will be calculated based on your enrollment at the time we post the award to your account.

If you withdraw from any of your summer courses your Federal Pell Grant and other Federal Funding will be adjusted accordingly.  Please contact our office if you are considering schedule changes.
