For most students, summer is considered the final semester of their academic award year; therefore, summer financial aid is very limited. A student’s eligibility for summer aid is generally the amount of annual eligibility remaining or not used during the fall and spring semesters. For that reason, students should secure/apply for summer aid (i.e. loans) as early as possible.

Eligibility Requirements

  • You must be an admitted/registered John Carroll Student
  • You must be enrolled in at least half-time to be eligible for most federal aid. 
  • You must complete the 2023-2024 and the 2024-2025 FAFSA along with the Summer Aid Application found below. 

Additional Loan Assistance 

Private educational loans are available to students who are enrolled half-time or full-time. Some, but not all, private lenders will lend to students enrolled less than half time.  Since these loans are credit-based and take several weeks to receive funds, you are encouraged to apply as early as possible to ensure your credit check is approved and you can secure payment for your courses.
