Starting in April, students will be notified of their eligibility for summer aid upon registering for summer classes if they have a Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) on file with Miami and if they have completed all outstanding financial aid requirements.
Summer financial aid is based on any remaining aid eligibility the student has from the current academic year. Generally, students are only eligible for additional federal student loan funds if they have the number of hours required to advance in grade level by the end of the spring semester. Students cannot use their Miami scholarships for summer session(s) unless the scholarship was awarded specifically for summer study. If all federal student loan eligibility has been exhausted, the student may want to consider a Federal Direct PLUS loan or a private loan.
