Summer Session Financial Aid

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 2022 (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 2021-2022 FAFSA for Summer 2022.

The Financial Aid Office calculates a financial aid offer 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 offers 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 16, 2022 for Summer 2022 II (OTA Online)
  • June 8, 2022 for Summer 2022

FAFSA Deadlines for Minnesota State Grant — Eligible students must submit a FAFSA within 30 days of the start of the term in order to be eligible for Minnesota State Grant funding in that term. Late applicants may still receive Minnesota State Grant for subsequent terms.

For Minnesota State Grant for Summer 2022, you must complete the 2021-2022 FAFSA.

The FAFSA receipt date must be on or before:

  • June 7, 2022 for Summer 2022 II (OTA Online)
