In order to receive loans for the summer term you must complete a 2017-2018 FAFSA as soon as possible. In addition to the 2018-2019 FAFSA. Recent undergraduates with financial aid at another school for the 2017-2018 academic year will need to add the Chicago-Kent School code (E00773) to their existing FAFSA, and update information on their FAFSA regarding to their grade level, degree seeking status, and year in college. If a student is still enrolled in the undergraduate program at the time they are applying for summer financial aid at Chicago-Kent, we recommend that they check in with the undergraduate school to find out if making these changes will impact their financial aid at the undergraduate school. The undergraduate program may be able to "lock the ISIR" so that these changes will not affect their undergraduate aid.
Once your FAFSA is complete and you are registered for the summer term you will receive a financial award notification for the summer term. After you receive your award notification, you will be required to accept the loans that you would like to receive on the myIIT portal and complete the corresponding Master Promissory Notes and Online Loan Entrance Counseling. Also, if there are any missing required documents necessary for the processing of your financial aid, you will need to turn them in before your funds can be disbursed to your student account.
The summer semester award is typically the equivalent of your tuition plus 3 months of living expenses, and is the last semester in the academic year at Chicago-Kent. If you have already received an award letter notification for the fall and spring terms, your award will change due to your participation in the summer start program. You will receive an email notification when your fall/spring award has been updated.
When you receive your award notification email, you must complete the following steps in order to receive your loan disbursements for the summer term:
1. Log into the myIIT portal and accept or decline your summer loans. Click here for log in instructions to the myIIT portal.
2. Complete a Master Promissory and Online Loan Entrance Counseling for the loans that you have accepted. Follow the links provided in your myIIT account under "Required Documents", and you will be directed to our website to read about the details of each loan requirement and then be linked to the Federal Direct Loan website to complete the requirements.
