Summer and Winter Terms
Students who would like a financial aid offer estimate including merit scholarships for summer and winter terms must complete a SAIC application and an annual FAFSA for federal financial aid (if eligible).
Upon awarding financial aid eligibility, students are sent by mail initial awards offers for on-campus classes and email for study trips. Students can view their financial aid in Self-Service account. Financial aid award offer updates are sent by email to the student’s SAIC email address.
For summer and winter terms including Ox-Bow classes, complete the online application for On-Campus Institutional Financial Aid. It is available on our Forms and Guides website in the "Applying for Financial Aid" section of the applicable award year.
Each year, the suggested priority deadline for this application is May 1 for summer and December 1 for winter. Students receiving merit scholarships should also complete this application.
Study Trip Classes (With or Without On-Campus Classes)
Complete the online Study Trip Pre-Registration application at Self-Service. This will be used to provide a financial aid estimate for each trip.
The following types of financial aid are available for those who are eligible:
- SAIC Merit Scholarships
- SAIC Grants
- Federal Pell Grants and Federal Stafford/PLUS Loans*
- Travel Scholarships for Study Trips (see Study Abroad/Off-Campus: SAIC Scholarships)
- Private Education Loans (see Loan Steps)
*Half-time enrollment for federal loans and FAFSA required at fafsa.gov.
