Summer aid is primarily made up of loans, and to a limited extent, grants and work-study. To be eligible, you must be admitted to the University of Oregon and enrolled in a degree or eligible certificate program. If you are a continuing student, you must be in good academic standing to receive financial aid. Summer term is part of the 2018-19 academic year and you must complete a 2018-19 FAFSA if you have not done so already.

Starting in 2019 no summer application will be needed. 

To Receive Summer Financial Aid

Register

Initial registration for summer begins May 6, 2019. Register for all of your classes by May 15 to receive your aid in a timely manner. Changes to your enrollment after May 15 may affect your eligibility for aid.

After May 15 we will continue to make summer aid awards for students that register later and/or complete the 2018-19 FAFSA later. Note last day to complete the 2018–19 FAFSA is June 30, 2019. We cannot guarantee availability of all funding sources for applications received after May 15.

Let Us Know If

  • You are receiving any scholarships summer term
  • You will be studying abroad and will want your budget increased because your parent will take out a PLUS loan for summer
  • You will be living with your parent this summer

Impacts of  Dropping Classes

If you drop a class(es) before it begins it will likely negatively impact your financial aid eligibility. If you drop below half time enrollment before seating in all of your classes, you may lose all of your financial aid for summer term. Dropping a class at any time may impact your current eligibility as well as your eligibility for aid in future terms if you do not make satisfactory academic progress. It is recommended you speak with a financial aid counselor if you are considering dropping a class during summer term.

Parent PLUS Loan

The Federal Direct Parent PLUS Loan is available to qualified parents of dependent undergraduate students with financial aid eligibility. If there is a difference between the total budget and the amount of the student's aid, a parent may be eligible to apply for a Parent PLUS Loan at www.studentloans.gov.

Graduate PLUS Loan

Graduate or law students who apply and qualify for a Graduate PLUS Loan may be able to obtain additional funding if there is a difference between the total budget and the amount of the Federal Direct Loans they are offered. In cases where the Federal Direct Loans do not cover the total budget, students may apply for a Graduate PLUS Loan to receive additional funds. 

Sample Budgets

The UO can only award funds for educational costs incurred during your period of enrollment for summer. For example, if you are enrolled in an eight-week session, the student budget will only include living expenses for eight weeks.

The following budgets are based on full-time attendance in an eight-week session (five-week session for law students) in summer 2019. Individual budgets may vary. Note, minimum credit hours requirements for half time enrollment summer term are 6 credits for undergraduates, 5 credits for graduates, and 3 credits for law students.
