How do I qualify for summer assistance?
The summer 2013 session is considered part of the 2012-2013 academic year. You must be a matriculating undergraduate or graduate student in a degree program to receive aid. In order to qualify for Federal loans, you must enroll for a minimum of six (6) undergraduate credits, or two (2) graduate courses (not for audit) for the summer terms.
What type of aid is available?
There are a limited number of partial need-based summer grants available to undergraduate students who are current need-based Hopkins grant recipients. To be considered for a partial summer grant, you must submit the JHU Summer Aid Application by March 15, 2013. Notification of receipt of awards will be made by May 15.
You may borrow funds through the Federal Direct Loan Program if you have not borrowed your maximum loan eligibility for the year. The maximum annual loan limits (combined subsidized and unsubsidized) in effect for the 2012-2013 academic year are: $5,500 (freshmen), $6,500 (sophomores), $7,500 (juniors/seniors), $20,500 (Graduate/Professional Students - unsubsidized only). Federal Parent (PLUS) loans as well as other educational loans for undergraduates are also available to meet the cost for summer courses. For information about Federal PLUS and other educational loans, visit our web site.
Federal Work-Study (FWS) funding is available during the summer for graduate students and for undergraduates participating in Community Service. Non-FWS jobs are also available. For more information about non-FWS jobs, contact Student Employment Services at (410) 516-8421. For information about Community Service FWS job opportunities, contact Alanna Nelson in the Office of Student Financial Services.
