Apply for Summer Aid

The 2022 Summer Aid Application will be available on MyUAlbany from April 25, 2022, to August 7, 2022.

We encourage students to meet with a Student Financial Services advisor, who can answer questions and help create a plan to finance summer studies. Contact us at [email protected] or 518-442-3202 to schedule a consultation. 



To qualify for summer aid, you must: 

  • Enroll in at least six credits in a matriculated program of study (Note: Students who are Pell eligible may qualify for some exceptions.) 

  • Complete the FAFSA for the appropriate aid year 

  • Complete any Important Notices on MyUAlbany 

  • Fulfill all academic requirements for receiving aid 


Important Considerations

  • At UAlbany, the summer term starts the academic year. 

  • Students must be enrolled at least half-time to qualify for loan disbursements. Disbursement dates are also determined by enrollment. 

  • Using aid in the summer may reduce your eligibility for Pell Grants and TAP payments in the fall and spring semesters. 

  • Summer financial aid can only be used to pay for tuition and living expenses during the weeks you are enrolled in classes.

Summer payment plans are available. For information on summer tuition, please visit our Cost & Fees pages for Undergraduate Students, Graduate Students, International Students and Online Students
