Applications received after April 15, 2011 will be processed as timely as possible. If you are planning to attend an overseas program or apply for an alternative loan, it is strongly encouraged that you meet with a financial aid advisor to go over and understand your options. PELL: All required documents and necessary corrections must be on file before the last day of your summer attendance. To apply for summer Pell, you must be receiving your undergraduate degree in August 2011 or December 2011 or will not be a full-time undergraduate during the fall or spring semester. TAP/APTS: If you didn’t link over to the NYS TAP application at the time you submitted your FAFSA, you can apply on-line at www.tapweb.org. TAP is for students who will be full-time during the summer, fall and/or spring semesters and in some cases students that are attending at least 6 credits in the summer may be eligible. If you are pursuing summer TAP, we encourage you to verify your academic eligibility. Prior to Summer 2011, you must have been full-time for Spring 2011 and have earned at least 24 credits at Oswego. Only confirmed TAP awards may be used as a deferment on your summer bill. TAP awards are not confirmed until NY State’s budget is passed. TAP for Summer 2011 could be paid as late as October 2012. Use of summer TAP will reduce future eligibility. If you plan to register for less than 12 credits for the fall or spring, you may wish to apply for APTS (Aid to Part-Time Study). To complete an APTS application go to www.oswego.edu/financial, select Download Forms, select APTS application, complete and submit to the Financial Aid Office with appropriate tax forms. APTS is not available for the summer session. Teach Grant: If you are planning a career in teaching, please visit our website at www.oswego.edu/financial and select Teach Grants. Information and applications are available on-line. Federal Direct Stafford Loan: All required documents and necessary corrections to your FAFSA application must be on file before the last day of your summer attendance. Once complete, eligibility will be determined and certified. If you are applying for a loan for the first time, be sure to complete a new e-mpn (electronic master promissory note) and loan entrance session at www.studentloans.gov. To qualify for a Direct Stafford Loan you must be enrolled for a minimum of 6 credits. If summer is your last period of enrollment toward your undergraduate degree, your loan eligibility will be pro-rated according to federal regulations. Your yearly loan eligibility will be divided by the number of semesters you will attend during 2011-12. (Example – if you will attend summer, fall and spring and are eligible for a total of $5,500, you will receive 1/3 of this loan for the summer, 1/3 for the fall and 1/3 for the spring.) There may be some exceptions to this for graduate and/or independent students. Check with the Financial Aid Office on your options. Maximum loan limits (per year): Freshman (1-26 credits) $5,500; Sophomores (27-56 credits) $6,500; Junior/Senior (57-122 credits) $7,500; Graduate $20,500.
