SUMMER FINANCIAL AID

Health Sciences Center    THE SUMMER APPLICATION PROCESS HAS CHANGED

A separate on-line summer aid application NO LONGER EXISTS.

Students who have submitted a valid FAFSA and who have also enrolled for at least 6 credits for summer will automatically be awarded a summer financial aid award package. It is important to understand that receiving summer aid will very likely reduce your fall/spring award package. Review of summer aid will begin in May.

Payment Policy and Procedure

Summer session students are required to pay for their summer classes by the first day of classes. You may pay by using the SOLAR System (Visa, Mastercard, Discover, or American Express), in person at the Student Accounts Office (cash, check, or credit card), or by mail.

In order to have a deferment applied to your account based on your summer aid, you must have accepted aid offered before balance is due. If full payment for all charges is made, you will be reimbursed when your financial aid funds have been received and credited to your student account.

Time Option Payment Plan (TOPP) is only available for fall and spring.

Accelerated Study TAP

You may apply for Accelerated Study TAP if enrolled at least half-time (6 credits) during Summer Sessions I and/or II. You must have earned 24 credits total from Stony Brook in prior two terms towards your degree in order to be eligible for an Accelerated Study Payment.

If you file your FAFSA electronically you will be able to link to your on-line TAP application at the end of the FAFSA session. If you missed the NYS link, or you filed a paper FAFSA, go to New York State Higher Education Services to complete the application process.

Undergrad TAP code is 0875
