In many cases students have little or no remaining aid federal eligibility for summer because it has been fully utilized during the fall and winter semesters. In addition, financial aid from College for Creative Studies and the State of Michigan is not available during the summer. Understanding the financial limitations that students wishing to take summer classes will face, the College for Creative Studies offers summer classes at a reduced tuition rate.
Students who did not attend full-time during the fall and winter semesters may have some remaining Federal Pell grant or Subsidized/Unsubsidized loan eligibility for summer. In addition, students may be eligible to borrow additional PLUS or alternative loans funds. To borrow federal loan funds, students must be enrolled at least half-time. Some alternative loans also require half- time enrollment.
