When will a decision be made to cancel low enrolled courses and how will I be notified?
Low enrolled classes will typically be cancelled a week before Winter Session begins, but exceptions can be made. The decision to cancel a low enrolled Winter Session course will be made by the Academic Dean and Provost. Students and faculty will be notified via their SRU email addresses if their course has been cancelled and full refund will be issued to the student.
Is financial aid available for Winter Session?
Very limited financial aid opportunities may be available to SRU students to assist with tuition and fee expenses for Winter Session courses. Because the Winter Session is not a full semester, it must be attached to the Spring Semester for financial aid consideration. Therefore, a student's potential aid for the 2018 Winter Session is limited to any 2018-19 aid eligibility that is not already utilized in the 2018-19 academic year.
If I am on financial aid suspension for Fall, can I regain eligibility using credits/GPA earned in Winter Session classes?
Unfortunately, no. Because Winter Session must be attached to the Spring Semester for financial aid purposes, a student's Satisfactory Academic Progress status after the fall semester remains the same for Winter/Spring aid eligibility. Students can view their Academic Progress status in the financial aid section on MySRU.
How do I access library resources during the winter session?
A reference librarian will be available on a limited basis every weekday during winter session and will respond to email inquiries. During the times the library is open all normal services will be available. Online resources are available 24/7. Please visit the Bailey Library home page for more information.
Can I receive the GI Bill for Winter Session?
Yes, students can apply for the GI Bill specifically for winter. If you attended SRU in the fall, please complete the SRU Winter/Spring VA Enrollment Verification form. If you are new to SRU, starting in the Winter Session, please contact our Veterans Educational Benefits Coordinator, George McDowell, at 724-738-2702.
Does my Winter enrollment impact my Spring enrollment status reported to the U.S. Department of Education's National Student Loan Data System (NSLDS)?
No. Spring enrollment reporting can only reflect the credits a student is enrolled in for the Spring semester. If a student needs to be at-least-half-time in the Spring semester for loan deferment purposes, the student needs to be sure to enroll in at least six (6) credits in Spring. Winter enrollment is reported as a separate enrollment period.
