Enrollment in a single Mini-Term vs Enrollment in both Mini-Terms or the Full 16-Week Term
The spring/summer enrollment period is unique because it offers the option of attending a spring mini-term, a summer mini-term (mini-terms are also referred to as half-terms), and/or the full 16 week spring/summer semester. For financial aid purposes, you must enroll in the minimum number of credit hours (indicated below) in order to establish eligibility for financial aid. However, your pattern of enrollment will determine your ultimate eligibility for assistance because it defines your eligible costs. Students who enroll in a single mini-term will have a lower Cost of Attendance than a student who enrolls in both mini-terms or the full 16-week term and this could change your aid eligibility.
To better understand your eligibility, we are providing the following chart:
||Minimum Required Credit Hours
