Financial aid is not offered specifically for winter session, however, winter session charges can be included in a matriculated student’s cost of attendance. This may allow for additional loan eligibility for the academic year. Winter session enrollment can also be added to spring enrollment to determine federal grant eligibility. For example, if a student is registered for 3 credits for winter and 9 credits for spring, the federal Pell Grant for the combined enrollment period will be determined based on 12 credits. A student who is already registered full time for the spring semester will not receive any additional grants. If a student qualifies for additional funds due to winter session enrollment, they will be disbursed with scheduled spring semester disbursements.
Initiate eligibility review by completing the Winter Aid Request Form. The form will be available in November on the Office of Student Financial Services website at https://www.newpaltz.edu/financialaid/forms.html.
