Important Notes

  • For the purpose of determining financial aid eligibility, Winter Intersession credit hours will be combined with Spring 2018 credit hours.
  • Students can enroll in a maximum of three (3) credit hours during the Winter Intersession term.
  • A 2017-2018 Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) must be filed and received by the Financial Assistance Office prior to December 1, 2017.
  • Any Winter Intersession 2018 financial aid eligibility will be combined with Spring 2018 eligibility and disbursed according to the Spring 2018 disbursement dates. Financial aid will not be provided in advance of the Spring 2018 disbursement dates.  Note: FHSU offers the option of purchasing books and supplies at the FHSU Bookstore with excess financial aid funds using an FHSU Book Voucher. Book vouchers are available for Intersession only to students whose pending federal financial aid is greater than the charges for Intersession 2018 and Spring 2018. If you qualify and wish to use a book voucher for Intersession 2018, you must select the option in TigerEnroll when finalizing Intersession enrollment

Intersession Aid Eligibility

  • Winter Intersession 2018 eligibility for all federal financial aid programs is based on the 2017-18 FAFSA, available funding, and your Winter Intersession and Spring 2018 enrollment plans.
  • You must be admitted as a degree seeking student and your Spring 2018 FHSU enrollment must be finalized in order to receive aid for Winter Intersession 2018.
  • Winter Intersession credit hours will not be included in the calculation of total spring credit hours used to determine enrollment level for consortium agreement purposes.
  • Dropping/withdrawing from courses could require a repayment, specifically Pell Grant recipients. For more information, visit www.fhsu.edu/finaid/Fin-Aid-Policies/#LDAP.
  • The combination of Winter Intersession 2018 and Spring 2018 credit hours will make up your Spring 2018 enrollment level for financial aid awarding purposes. It is your responsibility to notify our office if your enrollment level will be different for Spring 2018 due to your Intersession 2018 hours. Aid cannot release unless you are enrolled in the number of hours for which your aid is calculated.
