Summer Start ProgramThe Summer Start Program allows full-time students to get an early start on their coursework while simultaneously, it creates an environment in which students can recognize their own leadership potential. The program begins the second week in July and concludes just prior to LAUNCH in August. U.S. citizens and permanent residents are eligible for summer federal student loans. To apply, students will submit the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA).
- The 2016-2017 FAFSA will be used for summer and fall/spring packaging.
International students may apply for private loans on a semester-only basis or for the full academic year (fall and spring). Please note that if applying for a summer loan, it must have a summer-only loan period. Summer cannot be combined with a fall-spring loan period.
Please note: For visa purposes, international students should not include private student loans or potential merit-based scholarships as sources of funding. For further details, click here.
