Summer School Aid

Holcomb Observatory

Financial aid for summer is limited. It typically includes loan assistance and sometimes a federal grant. Butler gift assistance is only available for the fall and spring semesters.

For Federal Pell Grant eligibility, students must:

  • Be enrolled in a minimum of six credit hours at Butler University in the summer.
  • File the FAFSA and have completed their financial aid file for the academic year preceding summer school.
  • Be eligible for Federal Pell Grant during the academic year preceding summer school.

For Federal Direct Loan eligibility, students must:

  • Be enrolled in a minimum of six credit hours at Butler University in the summer as an undergraduate student, or three credit hours as a graduate student.
  • File the FAFSA and have completed their financial aid file for the academic year preceding summer school.
  • Have unused Federal Direct Loan eligibility from the academic year preceding summer school. Eligibility will be determined by the Office of Financial Aid.

Students will be notified starting in April and after summer enrollment via their Butler email if they have summer financial aid eligibility to review at my.butler.edu

Students may also explore Private Education Loans or the Federal Direct PLUS Loan program to assist with the costs associated with summer school.

Per federal regulations, financial aid for the upcoming academic year cannot be used to pay for summer charges.
