Summer School

In order to borrow for summer school:

Students must be enrolled for a minimum of six (6) credit hours at Butler University in one or both summer terms.

A summer school application, which is available online and in the Office of Financial Aid must be completed and submitted to the Office of Financial Aid prior to the published priority date. Applications will be available after spring break each year.

Priority dates for submitting an application to the Office of Financial Aid are as follows:

Summer One: May 1
Summer Two: June 15

In order to use remaining Federal Direct Loan Eligibility for Summer School:

Students must have filed a FAFSA and have completed verification (if applicable) for the academic year preceding summer school. Eligibility will be determined by the Office of Financial Aid.

Students must have unused Federal Direct Loan eligibility from the academic year preceding summer school.

Students with no Federal Direct Loan eligibility available may use private education loans or the Federal Direct PLUS Loan program (if eligible) to assist with the costs associated with summer school. A FAFSA is not necessary when applying for a private loan; however, the Summer School application must be completed.
