Summer financial aid will be based on your enrollment at the time your application is reviewed. You must enroll prior to submitting your summer aid application. THIS INCLUDES ALL EXTERNSHIPS AND SRP'S. DO YOUR PAPERWORK EARLY. Students taking a total of less than 6 credits for the entire summer may be considered for private loans. Students entering the School of Law in the Fall 2013 are NOT eligilbe for summer financial aid funds.
If you are planning to study abroad through another law school's program, contact the Student Finance Office immediately. Permission from the Associate Dean at the School of Law is required. A consortium agreement must also be sent to the host school.
If you are receiving a PILG Grant for the summer, this will be considered part of your financial aid package. The total of all aid, including a PILG Grant, cannot exceed your cost of attendance. PLEASE NOTE: Cost of attendance CANNOT be increased based on expenses incurred while earning a PILG Grant. If your PILG Grant is for work outside of Connecticut, costs incurred for this CANNOT be added to the cost of attendance. This is mandated by federal regulations.
COST OF ATTENDANCE
A student must be registered for at least 3 credits in any given session to be allowed living expenses for that session (e.g. a student who takes a 2 credit SRP during session I and a 2 credits SRP during session II will only be covered for the cost of the credits taken). A student who takes a 3 credit SRP during any given session will have living expenses included only for the session in which the student is enrolled even if the work for the SRP extends past the end of the session.
SUMMER FINANCIAL AID PROGRAMS
Federal Direct Stafford Loans: Students must have borrowed less than a total of $20,500 during the fall 2012 and spring 2013 semesters and be registered for at least 6 summer credits.
Federal Work Study: This will be awarded on a first come first served basis. Students must be registered for at least 3 credits during any given semester.
Federal Direct Grad Plus Loans: Students must be registered for at least 6 summer credits (total).
Private alternative loans: Students enrolled less than half-time (less than 6 credits total) may not qualify for all types of alternative loan options. Lenders approve these loans based on the student's consumer credit history. An co-signer is sometimes an option. Information regarding suggested alternative loan programs and instructions on how to apply are available at
www.financialaid.uconn.edu/index.php/Alternative_-_Student_Loans. The student must apply individually according to these instructions. Alternative loan applications are not originated by the Student Finance Office.
Applications will be available in March. Awards will begin in April and done on a rolling basis throughout the summer. The priority deadline for applications is May 1 to ensure that loan deferments will be included on students' bills. Students will receive their award letters via Husky Email. These letters need to be accepted or declined, signed, and submitted to the Student Finance Office. THE LAST DAY THAT AN APPLICATION MAY BE SUBMITTED IS TWO WEEKS BEFORE THE END OF ANY GIVEN SESSION. IF A STUDENT IS APPLYING FOR BOTH SESSIONS, ONLY ONE APPLICATION IS REQUIRED.
All Summer charges, regardless of the due date, will be paid prior to the issuance of any refunds. A student who attends both sessions will receive one disbursement at the beginning of the first summer term.
