Disbursement of Student Loan Proceeds

If you maximized the receipt of Federal Direct Loan eligibility during the academic year, you may not be eligible for additional funding. Dropping below half-time will result in cancellation of your Summer Loan award. Disbursement will occur once enrollment has been certified for half-time status (6 credits for undergraduate students and 5 credits for Graduate level students) but no earlier than one week prior to the start of class.
