Quinnipiac Law Summer Financial Aid

Students who wish to study during the summer period (May - August) may apply for financial assistance to take classes at Quinnipiac University, study abroad through our Ireland program or study abroad at another ABA-approved law school. The cost of attendance for the Ireland program is available under separate cover in the Office of Financial Aid.

Eligibility for Aid

Summer financial aid is processed separately from the academic year's financial aid. Students who wish to enroll during the summer must be registered for a minimum of 6 credits to be considered for Federal Direct Loan Programs. There are a few private educational loan programs that may be used for those enrolled in less than 6 credits. In addition, you must be in compliance with the Standards of Satisfactory Academic Progress as defined by the Law School. Check with the Office of Financial Aid to determine your status.

Types of Aid Available

The primary sources of assistance for summer study are in the form of federal unsubsidized loans, federal graduate PLUS loans and private educational loans. Please be advised that the maximum federal unsubsidized loan per academic year is $20,500. Therefore, if you choose to borrow a portion of your federal unsubsidized loan during the summer, your eligibility for the subsequent fall and spring semesters will be reduced.
