Winter session tuition and fees


Financial Aid

Students should be aware that there is no separate disbursement of financial aid for the winter session. Credits taken during the winter session are combined with spring credits to determine eligibility and any aid awarded for the winter and spring sessions will be disbursed during the spring semester.

Please note that if a student applies for a federal direct or PLUS loan for the winter and spring sessions, the student must be enrolled during the spring semester to be eligible.

Students who enroll during the winter session and are not eligible for federal aid may still apply for an alternative student loan to assist with these costs. Students who wish to apply for winter financial aid should schedule an appointment with Financial Aid Staff once they have scheduled winter courses.
