** SUMMER FINANCIAL AID **
Financial Aid awards will be processed automatically based on data from our Registrar’s Office. You will be notified via your Marian University email address when your award is ready to view in MyFinancial Aid. Financial Aid awards are dependent upon any remaining eligibility you have for the 2019-2020 academic year.
To be considered for Summer 2020 financial aid, make sure you have:
• Filed your 2019-20 FAFSA
• Registered at least half-time for summer: ( Master’s degrees: 3 credits, PhD 3 credits, and Undergraduate students: 6 credits)
• Be classified as a degree-seeking student
If you are classified as “Non-Degree Seeking”, you will not be eligible for federal aid, but are welcome to apply for an alternative loan to cover your summer costs.
