Students studying abroad during the Summer Semester

Students studying abroad during summer semester at a La Salle University consortium or partner school will be charged La Salle’s per-credit tuition rate for summer semesters. Students will also be assessed a charge from housing while abroad, as well as an administrative fee. Students will receive an exemption of their University fees.

Costs such as airfare, meals, books, personal incidental expenses and other travel costs are not included in the University charges.

Student loans are the only type of financial aid that is generally available to students for summer. However, some students may also be eligible for the Federal Pell Grant. Students are encouraged to maximize their Federal subsidized/unsubsidized Direct Loan eligibility first and, if necessary, can consider Private Alternative Loans. Students borrowing federal student loans must enroll for at least 6 credits for the semester.

To apply for federal student loans for summer semester, students must have a current-year FAFSA on file, and complete a Summer Semester Institutional Data Form on the mylasalle portal. For application instructions, visit https://www.lasalle.edu/howtoapply.


Refunds

A refund is issued when the student has a credit balance on his/her student account. Credit balances are created when there are remaining funds from loans and financial aid after the University charges have been covered. Refunds will be processed by the La Salle University Office of Student Accounts and will be issued in accordance with the regular La Salle University refund schedule. No refunds will be made available to students until AFTER the La Salle University drop/add period ends for a particular semester.
