Summer & J-term Aid

Students who enroll in summer session and/or January term (J-term) are encouraged to apply for financial aid to assist them in meeting their costs for those courses.


  • The J-term financial aid application is available in early November. Any additional funding is provided during the spring semester using a student's combined J-term and spring enrollment.

Summer Session:

Upon receipt of a summer or J-term financial aid application, students who have filed the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) will automatically be considered for federal and state grant and loan eligibility. You must be a degree-seeking student at the University of St. Thomas to receive financial aid during summer session and/or J-term.

There are no institutional grant or scholarship funds available during summer session and/or J-term with the exception of full-tuition scholarships. The availability of ROTC assistance during summer session and/or J-term will be determined by the military detachment providing the scholarship funding.
