Financial Aid

Financial assistance may be available to degree-seeking St. Olaf students during the Summer session(s). Financial assistance during summer is typically in the form of loans only. However, if you are a Federal Pell Grant or Minnesota State Grant recipient, you may qualify for assistance from those programs as well.

In addition to completing your 2014–15 FAFSA and St. Olaf Online Financial Aid Application (returning students only), you should also complete the Summer 2014 Financial Aid Request.

Your summer aid will be based on the enrollment plans you indicate on your Summer 2014 Financial Aid Request. If your enrollment plans change, notify the Financial Aid Office so your aid can be recalculated.
