Summer Financial Aid
To apply for Summer 2013 financial aid, you must:
1) Have a valid 2012-2013 FAFSA on file with Duquesne
All summer financial aid is awarded based on the previous academic year's FAFSA application. For example, for summer 2013 semester we will use the 2012-2013 FAFSA application.
NOTE: The summer semester is billed at a per-credit basis and treated as a separate billing and loan period. Therefore, you must apply separately for summer aid.
2) Complete the Summer Financial Aid Application
2013 Work Study Application (for both graduate and undergraduate students)
2013 UG 25% Award Application (Read Application for Details)
2013 GR 25% Award Application (Read Application for Details)
Types of Available Summer Financial Aid
Generally, grants and academic monies are not available in the summer semester.
- If you would like to take advantage of working on campus during the summer, you must complete the Summer Work Study Application.
- If you need to apply for additional loans to cover your summer bill, you must apply separately because it cannot be added to an academic year (fall/spring) loan.
- If enrolled at least half-time our recommended option is the Federal Direct PLUS loan which are for graduate students and parents of dependent undergraduate students.
- Graduate students and parents of dependent undergraduate students can apply for the Graduate PLUS loan and Parent PLUS loan, respectively, online at www.studentloans.gov.
- Direct loans are available in the summer semester ONLY if you haven't used your annual maximum AND attend at least half-time.
- Government Regulations prohibit students from borrowing more than their grade level limit for one Academic Year. Duquesne's Academic Year is defined as Fall, Spring, and Summer (if applicable) terms. If you have utilized the maximum Stafford Loan during the preceding Fall and Spring semesters you will not be eligible for a Summer Stafford Loan.
