In order to receive loans for the summer term you must complete a 2019-2020 FAFSA as soon as possible. Recent undergraduates with financial aid at another school for the 2019-2020 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 school may be able to "lock the ISIR" so that any required corrections will not affect their undergraduate aid.
Once your FAFSA is complete and you are registered for the summer term you will receive a separate financial aid award notification email for the summer term. When you receive your award notification email, you must complete the following steps in order to receive your loan disbursements for the summer term:
- Log into the myIIT portal and accept or decline your summer loans. Click here for log in instructions to the myIIT portal.
- Complete a Loan Agreement-Master Promissory and Loan Entrance Counseling online with Direct Loans here.
If there is any missing required documentation necessary for the processing of your financial aid, you will be notified by email.
The summer semester award is typically the equivalent of your tuition plus 3 months of living expenses. Please note that if you have already received an award notification email for the 2020-2021 academic year (fall 2020 and spring 2021), your award may change due to your participation in the summer start program. You will receive a revised award notification email when your award has been updated.
