Graduate School: How to Apply
As a financial aid applicant for the 2013-14 academic year, you may be interested in receiving aid for the Summer 2014 term. Packaging of summer school financial aid will begin March 2014. If you wish to apply for summer financial aid, please note the following:
- To be awarded student loans, complete the Summer 2014 Graduate School Financial Aid Application. You may submit the application information electronically.
- Aid applicants must be registered for at least 6 hours in order to be considered for federal loans. If you plan to register for the summer term, remember that pre-registration begins February 10, 2014. It is important you register early to ensure that your aid funds will be available by the start of the term.
- You must have completed a 2013-14 FAFSA application and included Emory’s school code of 001564. If you have not yet submitted your 2013-14 FAFSA, sign onto FAFSA On The Web and complete the application online. The deadline for filing the 2013-14 FAFSA is June 30, 2014.
- You must have no outstanding items under your To Do List on OPUS.
After you have registered for summer classes, we will review your eligibility for summer aid. The award will be based on your number of registered hours. If you have not expended your Federal Stafford Loan eligibility during Fall 2013 and Spring 2014 terms we will send you a summer award email (to your Emory assigned email address) directing you to OPUS to view and accept/decline the award.
If you have expended your federal loan eligibility, you will be notified by email directing you to our website for information on how to apply for a Federal Graduate PLUS Loan or private education loans to cover your cost of attendance.
