To be eligible for financial aid, students must apply for and be accepted as degree-seeking students at St. Kate's. Financial aid eligibility is based on your combined enrollment for all full-term and partial-term courses that count towards the completion of your degree program requirements.
To receive funds, St. Kate's students should submit a St. Kate's Financial Aid Application: Summer 2021 (Not applicable to OTA Online, Doctor of Physical Therapy and Master of Physician Assistant Studies Students). Financial Aid for Summer is very limited and is usually in the form of student loans. Students must complete the 2020-2021 FAFSA for Summer 2021.
The Financial Aid Office calculates financial aid awards for each student based on her or his unique financial and academic circumstances. To do this, we use a matrix of program costs based on averaged expenses and enrollment for each type of academic program. These program costs determine a student's financial aid budget, (estimated cost of attendance), and are used as a baseline for developing financial aid awards to help meet educational needs. Please review the Cost of Attendance information for your specific program for more information.
For maximum aid eligibility you must register for classes by:
- May 17, 2021 for Summer 2021 II (OTA Online)
- June 9, 2021 for Summer 2021
