 Financial Aid

Financial Aid programs available for Summer Sessions:

  • Financial Aid programs available for Summer Sessions
  • Federal Stafford Loan Subsidized
  • Federal Stafford Loan Unsubsidized
  • PLUS Loan (Parent Loan for Undergraduate Students)
  • Tuition Assistance Program (TAP)
  • Federal Work Study
  • Pell Grant

Summer Eligibility Requirements

Only matriculated Stony Brook students may receive summer financial aid awards. Visiting students should check with the institution they attend during the academic year. Applicants for TAP, Stafford Loans, and PLUS Loans must enroll in summer session classes for a minimum of six (6) units. Undergraduate Federal Work Study applicants must be enrolled. Advanced graduate students engaged in full-time research must enroll in the appropriate course.

Since TAP, Pell Grant, and the Stafford Loan programs have award limits which may not be exceeded, applicants should check with the Office of Financial and Scholarship Services to understand how summer awards may affect future eligibility.

A recent Pell Grant regulation change may allow you to receive an extra Pell payment if you enroll in summer courses.

Anticipated Aid

Awards that have been accepted but have not yet been disbursed to your University account are considered “anticipated aid.” Award estimates, stipends, Work-Study, and student reported awards are not recorded as anticipated aid. In addition, anticipated aid that is not disbursed after a period of time will expire and will no longer be taken into account against any outstanding University charges. Please note that if your aid has expired, it can still be disbursed to your account once the disbursement hold is resolved. To avoid potential late fees and registration blocks, it is important to promptly follow up on all required documents.

Summer TAP for Matriculated Undergraduates

Students may be eligible to receive TAP (Tuition Assistance Program) to assist with tuition costs associated with summer study.

  • You must have received your first TAP award in the 2006-2007 academic year or
  • You must have been enrolled full time in the prior spring
  • You must have earned a combined total of 24 credits in the prior two semesters; these credits must have been earned at Stony Brook University (transfer credits do not apply).
