Winter & Summer Sessions

Winter Session on Campus at the Maurice A. Deane School of Law at Hofstra University

  1. Register for the program.
  2. Determine how to pay for the course: Students may borrow private and federal loans for this program. Please note that students who still have room in their budget for the current academic year are encouraged to consider borrowing federal loans first. However, students should be reminded that federal loans will be disbursed evenly between the fall and spring semesters; so, if $6,000 in federal loans is borrowed for the Winter Session program, only $3,000 will disburse prior to the program, and the remaining $3,000 will disburse prior to the spring semester.
  3. Apply for a loan: Students will need to complete a Winter Session Loan Request form (PDF) to request a loan for this program. The Director of Financial Aid will process any loans that the student has requested. Apply for the requested loans.

Summer Session on Campus at Hofstra Law

  1. Register for the course(s).
  2. Determine how to pay for the course(s): If you are registered for less than six credits you may only borrow private loans. However, when taking six or more credits, students are encouraged to consider borrowing federal loans first, before private loans. Remember that federal loans will be disbursed evenly between the summer and fall semesters; so, if $6,000 in federal loans is borrowed, only $3,000 will disburse in the summer semester, and the remaining $3,000 will disburse prior to the fall semester. Additionally, federal loans will not disburse earlier than 10 days prior to the first day of classes. Furthermore, in order to borrow federal loans for this, program students will need to have completed a FAFSA form prior to applying for federal loans.
