Financial aid is available to assist in offsetting the cost of taking classes during the summer months.
Most academic scholarships apply toward summer tuition on a per semester rate using the following schedule:
Summer Hours Taken
|Academic Scholarship % Applied|
Students should also be aware that the amount of earned hours you have may impact the amount of Stafford Loans you can obtain in the next semester. The table below provides the guideline. For example, if after the freshman year a student has earned less than 30 hours, the student will only qualify for $2,750 in Stafford Loans for the fall semester rather than the $3,250 for students who have earned between 30 and 59 hours. So, taking summer classes may help you get the hours you need to qualify for the higher level of financial aid. Classes taken in the summer semester can affect eligibility for awards already offered for fall if the GPA changes.
|Hours Earned||Stafford Loan Amount*|
Students who first received the HOPE scholarship in the fall semester of 2009 or thereafter are now eligible for an additional $2,000 beginning in the summer of 2012. If you are enrolled in a 4-year institution (Lipscomb University) full time (12 hours) and meet the HOPE criterea you can receive $2000 in Hope Scholarhip for summer classes. A pro-rated amount can be awarded to those students who are enrolled in less than 12 hours.
