Financial Aid Eligibility for Winter

Winter credits contribute to a student's spring enrollment total but are billed separately from spring courses.  Students must either pay out of pocket for winter classes or have enough excess spring aid to cover their combined balances.  Students may receive an increased Pell grant and/or qualify for a loan if they add winter courses and are not already enrolled full-time (12+ credits for UG and 6+ credits for GR) for the spring semester.

Expecting to use excess Spring semester aid to pay your Winter bill?

If you plan to use your Spring financial aid to pay your Winter term charges, you must contact the Student Accounts Office.  Student Accounts will verify your spring aid and determine if you have sufficient aid to pay both spring semester and winter term.  If so, the office will clear you for the winter term.  You must contact the Student Accounts Office via phone or email before the bill due date or your winter courses could be dropped.
