Summer UC Application Graduate and Undergraduate (pdf)

The summer is a separate term from the academic year and this separate aid application is required if the student plans to continue attending in the summer term. Students beginning study in a summer term must complete the summer UC Application (graduate or undergraduate) along with this year’s FAFSA and the prior year’s income documents. The summer is considered the ‘trailing term’ by Syracuse University and is administered as such when working with Federal Aid Programs. Unused portions of annual limits from the academic year in the different federal grant and loan programs may be used in the summer.

New students, stopped-out, and first-time aid applicants:

The application process consists of this UC Financial Aid application and a completed Free Application for Federal Student Aid (see FAFSA in the important links below). Students may be required to submit copies of income documentation, which means a copy of the requested year’s IRS Tax transcript or non-taxable income documentation (such as from Social Security). Monitor your “To Do” list in MySlice periodically after submitting your completed FAFSA to see what documentation is required to complete your UC Financial aid application. NOTE: Students admitted for summer or returning in summer after stopping-out for more than a year must complete two years’ FAFSAs, as the summer term is the final term in the academic year; fall, spring, summer. To receive summer aid, the current academic year’s FAFSA is needed (for which June 30th is the last date by which it can be completed). To receive aid in fall, spring and summer of the upcoming year, the newest FAFSA is required. Although summer may be your first term, it is not the first term of the academic year, which is why 2 years’ FAFSAs are needed. If you have questions, please contact our office.

Undergraduate Child Care Grant Application

The University College Financial Aid Office provides information about child care grants and information to UC undergraduate students who demonstrate financial need. With sponsorship from Syracuse University’s Human Resources department, UC has entered into a partnership with Child Care Solutions , a local not-for-profit organization that provides information, referrals, and educational materials to parents who need child care in order to continue their education. Grant money awarded to a student is posted to the student’s Bursar account and paid by UC directly to the child care provider. Students must apply each semester. A Child Care Grant Application is available for those students who qualify.
