Disbursement of Student Loan Proceeds

You may not receive aid from multiple institutions during the same enrollment period (Summer 2020).  Your summer loan eligibility is affected by federal loan money awarded at TAMUK or another institution during the 2019-2020 aid year. If you maximized the receipt of Federal Direct Loan eligibility during the academic year, you may not be eligible for additional funding. Dropping below half-time will result in cancellation of your Summer Loan award. Disbursement will occur once enrollment has been certified for half-time status (6 credits for undergraduate students and 4.5 credits for Graduate level students).
