Summer Aid

Visit the Boston University Summer Term website for additional information about summer sessions.

Federal Loans

Summer financial aid is a separate process. A student may be eligible to borrow the Federal Direct Loan for the summer term if they did not borrow all of their annual loan limits during the prior academic year or will not be borrowing the annual loan limit for the coming academic year due to attendance for only one semester.

Graduate students can borrow up to $20,500 for an academic year. If you enroll in a summer semester, the borrowed amount will be placed against that annual limit. The remaining amount will be divided equally between the fall and spring semesters. In addition, a student is eligible to borrow if the summer term is the student’s final enrollment period.
