Reminder: Summer 2014 Financial Aid Requirements


Student Financial Planning would like to share important information with you regarding Federal financial aid eligibility for the 2014 summer term.  Please complete the Summer 2014 Financial Aid Request Form and return it to the Office of Admissions and Student Financial Planning.

For students who are planning to take summer courses, a distinct financial aid budget exists based upon the course(s) for which you register. You are eligible for living expense money only for the actual duration of your attendance if you elect to attend less than the full summer term of nine weeks.  Example: If you enroll in a course that lasts 3 weeks, you will receive aid to cover the cost of tuition, fees, books, and living expenses only for this 3 week period.

Pay attention to the length of the courses when enrolling if you are concerned with receiving living expenses during the summer.  We can only award aid for the course, and the length of the course, for which you are enrolled.  Be advised that living expenses are budgeted at approximately $700 per week.

If you change your course schedule after you submit this form, you must contact us to amend your aid package in order to ensure timely disbursement of funds.

If you would like to meet with a Student Financial Planning counselor to talk about your summer financial aid package, please email us for an appointment.

Please feel free to e-mail this form to finaid@law.stetson.edu or fax to 727-384-3331

Important Reminders:

  • You must be enrolled in at least 3 credit hours to be eligible for ANY Federal financial aid during the Summer term. Your living expense refund check will not be released until the classes that comprise those 3 credit hours have all started.
  • Living expense money for the entire three-month summer period can only be awarded to students who attend the full summer term.
  • Your 2014-2015 Renewal FAFSA must be completed to receive Fall 2014/Spring 2015/Summer 2015 financial aid. (Code: E00342)
