Note: No student may borrow more than the cost of education.
If you borrowed less than the limit for your grade level during the 2012-2013 academic year, you can borrow the difference between your current loan and the limit for your grade level. (For example, a freshman who borrowed $3,500 for 2012-2013 can borrow up to $2,000 in unsubsidized loan for the Trimester.) You can see how much you borrowed for the current academic year on Towson Online Services.
Complete the 2013 Application for Summer Trimester Financial Aid
To apply for financial aid, complete the Application for Summer Trimester Aid and submit it to the Financial Aid Office.
Because the amount of your aid will depend on the number of sessions you attend, as well as your enrolled units, the Financial Aid Office will process your application only after you register for Summer Trimester classes. Any change in your schedule may result in a reduction to your aid.
If your Trimester aid exceeds your university charges, your account will have a credit balance. Rebate checks for credit balances are usually available three weeks after the credit balance occurs. The Bursar’s Office will issue rebate checks no earlier than the first day of classes.
For aid calculations, the three-week January minimester is combined with the Spring term. Spring aid disbursements are based on your combined units for the Minimester and Spring terms. Minimester units only change spring aid if they increase your enrollment status for the spring aid period. Examples:
