Undergraduate students are required to enroll in a minimum of 8 units for financial aid eligibility. Seniors
who will graduate by the end of winter quarter may enroll in a minimum of 6 units
to be eligible for summer aid. Teaching Credential and graduate students are required
to enroll in a minimum of 6 units for financial aid eligibility. Your eligibility
will be calculated based on the census date for the session(s) in which you enroll
based on the Drop and Refund dates published on the UCR Summer Session website.
Late applicants will be awarded Stafford Loan, Unsubsidized Stafford Loan, PLUS Loan (for dependent
students), and Pell Grant funds (if eligible) only, and will not qualify to receive
Summer UCR Grant. Note that annual loan limits are not increased if students enroll
in four terms vs. three terms, so the amount of Direct Loan funds used in the summer
will decrease the remaining amount available for the fall, winter, and spring quarters
of the academic year. Pell eligible students may qualify for an additional Pell Grant
disbursement if you enroll for four terms.
Summer financial aid applicants must be in compliance with UCR’s satisfactory academic progress policy as of the end of spring quarter 2018 in order to qualify for summer financial assistance.
Your GPA and units completed will be reviewed after spring grades are processed.
If you do not meet the eligibility requirements for continued financial aid, you will
be notified of the option to submit an appeal with documentation of any extenuating
circumstances that prevented you from making satisfactory academic progress.
If you drop below the minimum enrollment requirement reported on your Request for Summer Aid, your eligibility will be recalculated.
Your summer award may be subject to a revision and you may be billed for any aid disbursed
to you to pay your fees or issued to you as a refund. Your award may be reduced or
cancelled if you never begin attendance in the number of units or sessions that you report on your application.
If is your responsibility to report any changes in your housing or enrollment status (anticipated units and sessions of attendance) to the Financial Aid Office immediately
to avoid a reduction in your financial aid and a possible billing for funds already
disbursed to you.
