Students enrolling in at least six credits for the summer 2015 semester who submit their 2014-2015 Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) no later than June 30th, 2015, may be eligible for federal and institutional summer aid. At The University of Montana the Summer 2015 Semester is considered part of the 2014-2015 academic year. Session dates and deadlines may be found at www.umt.edu/ce/summer/default.
To apply for Summer Semester financial aid, please submit the Summer 2015 Financial Aid Application. This form usually is available in early March when summer class registration begins. Students who submit a Summer 2015 Federal Aid Application must read the Rights and Responsibilities.
Federal Stafford (Subsidized and Unsubsidized) Loans are available to students who have not already reached their annual loan limits prior to the summer semester. Students whose grade level has changed from freshmen to sophomore or from sophomore to junior by the start of the Summer Semester may also be eligible for additional Federal Stafford Loans.
A dependent student’s parent may apply for a Federal PLUS Loan. The student must provide their parent contact information on the Summer 2015 Federal Aid Application. The Financial Aid Office will contact that parent for approval that the parent is willing to borrow the Federal PLUS Loan.
Federal PLUS Loans are available to graduate students who have reached their annual loan limits for the Federal Stafford Loan Program and need additional funding.
Students may apply for private student loans. The student would need to apply with a bank or lending agency and complete all their requirements. That agency will contact the Financial Aid Office for certification.
Students who submit the Summer 2015 Financial Aid Application will automatically be considered for the Federal Pell Grant if they have not already reached the annual maximum. Students who attend full-time Autumn and Spring will likely not have remaining eligibility for the summer.
