Generally, students attending summer school at Sewanee are eligible to apply for student loans to pay the costs of enrollment. Consistent with federal regulations, students must enroll for at least six credit hours and make satisfactory academic progress to qualify to borrow for summer school. University need-based and merit-based scholarships, and need-based student employment, are not available during summer school. Tennessee Hope and Pell Grant recipients should contact this office to determine if any state or federal funding is available for summer enrollment.
Some summer school programs which are external to, but affiliated with, the University (such as Island Ecology and British Studies at Oxford) occasionally offer scholarships to participants. Interested students should contact the program directly to determine if such assistance is available and, if so, what steps need to be taken for consideration.
