Summer Financial Aid
Summer Financial Aid applies to students who have remaining financial aid eligibility. When a student is initially offered a financial aid package each year they are packaged for an entire academic school year. At Howard, the summer sessions are considered a ”trailer” to the fall and spring semesters. If you have borrowed your annual maximum amount under the William D. Ford Federal Direct Loan (Direct Loan) Program during the fall and spring terms, you are not eligible for a direct loan during the summer term.
Often students can choose to extend their current Parent PLUS Loan or Graduate PLUS Loan to cover summer school expenses. If a student only attends Howard for one of two semesters, they may have remaining eligibility, they would have the possibility to use the funds from the semester they were not enrolled at Howard, provided they did not attend another institution within the academic school year.
