Summer Loan Procedures

U.S. citizens or eligible non-citizens will need to complete the on-line summer financial aid form at Office of Financial Aid.  Visit the Summer Financial Aid page of the main SU Financial Aid website and register for your loans via MySlice. After logging in MySlice, go to the Financial Aid Portfolio and be sure to select the "Summer II 2021" option. You will be able to do the following: 

  • Use the interactive worksheet to budget your summer expenses.
  • Compare loan options using the Credit Options Tab.
  • Complete your Summer Loan Application and any other tasks necessary.

When filling out the summer loan application be sure to enter “6" credits in the box labeled “MPA (New to program in 2021).”
Six credits in the summer term is considered full time by US federal standards.  

If you filed the necessary documents and have not yet received information about your loan status from the University's Office of Financial Aid, please contact Cynthia Roach (e-mail preferred), Graduate Financial Aid Coordinator, 200 Bowne Hall, Syracuse, NY 13244, or by phone (315) 443-1513. 

*When communicating with any SU Financial Aid officer, please remember to identify yourself as an incoming MPA student and include your SU ID number.
