Adjusting Your Aid for Enrollment
Adjust Your Aid To Match Your Enrollment
At SAIC, tuition and financial aid are calculated per credit hour. If you decide to enroll in something other than the standard enrollment for your program (ie. 15 credits/semester for undergraduates), notify SFS immediately by submitting an online Early Aid Adjustment Form by the dates below so your aid can be calculated to match your enrollment. This will ensure more accurate invoices and statements. By submitting this form, SFS staff will update your award on Self-Service and notify you by email.
|Semester||Aid Adjustment Form
Priority Submission Date
|Estimated First Bill Date
(approx. third week of each month)
|Summer||April 1||Third week of April|
|Fall||July 1||Third week of July|
|Winter||November 1||Third week of November|
|Spring||December 1||Third week of December|
Requesting an Award Estimate
If you do not want SFS to change your award on Self-Service but would like an estimate of your aid at different credit hour scenarios, you can request just a written estimate. This is helpful to students so that they can understand the financial aspect of being enrolled in a number of credit hours that are other than the standard enrollment (ie. 15 credit hours for undergraduate, etc). To request an estimate, submit a 2019-20 Financial Aid Estimate Request. By submitting this form, you will be provided with only an estimate by email. Your award will NOT actually be updated in real-time on Self-Service. If you want your actual award changed on Self-Service, you must submit an “Early Aid Adjustment” form as instructed above instead.
