Summer Financial Aid Available to Cover One Free Class

Financial aid opportunities are available for students choosing to enroll this summer at the University of Houston-Downtown. Sweetening the deal, eligible students will be able to take one Summer 2021 course at no cost.

Students will be charged the cost for one class and summer financial aid will pay for the course using Federal, State or Institutional funds. One course is defined as a class up to four credit hours. The program is available to UHD undergraduate students only for the Summer 2021 semester, excluding the mini session in May.

Students are encouraged to register early for summer classes for the best chance to receive the award. Students must register for at least one class to qualify; however, some funds will require half-time enrollment (6+ hours) to be eligible for summer aid.

Once registered for summer classes, monitor myUHD for important notices and requests.

Funds will be awarded based on the following criteria:

  • Total number of enrolled credit hours at the time of the review.
  • Some federal and state awards require at least six hours enrollment.

After awards are received, changes in enrollment hours may affect eligibility. Financial aid is available on a first-come, first-served basis and is subject to academic progress the Spring 2021 term. Any outstanding balance holds may impact a student’s eligibility to take advantage of this opportunity.
