Summer Financial Aid

Degree students at AUC may apply and receive summer financial aid; however, the opportunities tend to be more limited. The academic year begins with the fall semester and ends with the summer semester.

Many students utilize the full value of their financial aid eligibility among the fall and spring semesters, which mean a student may not have any remaining financial aid eligibility for the summer. For example: Student A is an undergraduate junior and received a $5,500 federal subsidized loan for the school year; $2,750 was disbursed to the student in the fall semester, and $2,750 was disbursed to the student in the spring semester. Because the student used his or her full eligibility for the federal subsidized loan for the fall and spring semesters, there is no remaining federal subsidized loan eligibility for the summer semester.

To apply:

Students who will be taking classes during the summer should notify the financial aid counselor and log in to their VFAO account. Submit a Request for Additional Funds form (found in Forms and Documents).  On that form, they should state that they will be attending AUC during the summer semester and enter the number of registered credits.
