These credits can be split between the two summer sessions or taken during one session. Any Federal loans received during the summer are reduced from your fall/spring financial aid. To receive Summer School Financial Aid, you must have completed and submitted a 2012-2013 Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) or a 2013-2014 FAFSA . Please borrow wisely.
You must complete the Summer School Financial Aid Request Form to be considered for summer school aid.
If you are interested in working on campus this summer (either part time or full time), please complete the Summer Work-study Request Form AND contact the Federal Work-study coordinator by calling 605-331-6625 or emailing

*Important notice: Students receiving Title IV financial aid including loans must be degree seeking USF students. Coursework taken each semester must count toward degree requirements. Federal financial aid cannot be awarded to students for classes that do not count toward the student's degree. Once a student has met the graduation requirements, that student is no longer eligible for financial aid unless the student pursues a new degree program (different than a new major.) Upon seeking a new degree, only remaining federal loan eligibility is available.
