Calculate Anticipated Summer 2013 Aid Eligibility
West Lafayette and College of Technology Statewide Locations
To calculate your anticipated summer aid , please review the following information regarding each resource listed:
Pell Grant Eligibility:As long you had Pell Grant in the academic year, but were not enrolled fulltime each semester you could be eligible to receive Pell Grant during the summer.
Example: A student who attended full-time in the fall and half-time in the spring, would still have a half-time Pell award remaining for the summer 2013 session.
For further information regarding Pell grant eligibility, refer to the information on our website: http://www.purdue.edu/dfa/sandg/pell.php
Stafford Loan eligibility: Stafford loan eligibility is contingent on upon your summer grade level and your academic year borrowing.
Example: As a sophomore the annual maximum is $6,500. If you only borrowed $5,000 during the academic year you could be eligible to borrow up to $1,500 for summer.
If you have not borrowed your annual maximum amount please visit: http://www.purdue.edu/dfa/loans/stafford.php to calculate your remaining eligibility.
PLUS Loan: PLUS Loans can be taken out to cover the cost of education minus other types of financial aid. However, these loans require a credit check and not all that apply are approved to borrow. Please view this webpage for more information: http://www.purdue.edu/dfa/loans/plus.php
Summer Work Study: Students who were awarded work study during the academic year and would like to receive work study during the summer 2013 session will need to request this on their summer aid application.
