Renewing Your Aid for Law Students

Law students are required to submit the FAFSA annually in order to borrow under the federal direct loan program. Eligibility may vary from year to year based on changes in income, assets, household size, number of dependents in college and overall funding levels.

In addition, the Higher Education Act (HEA) of 1965, as amended, requires institutions that receive and disburse federal Title IV aid to develop and enforce, annually, their standards of satisfactory academic progress (SAP). These requirements encourage students to successfully complete courses for which financial aid is received and to progress satisfactorily toward degree completion.

The University of Dayton also uses these same standards for the renewal of other University funds. If you are a law scholarship recipient, the School of Law will review your academic performance at the end of each term to determine whether to renew the scholarship.

In addition, the Office of Financial Aid will review your progress in May of each year to make sure you are still eligible to borrow from the Direct Loan program. We recommend you review the Satisfactory Academic Progress guidelines (.pdf). It is our institutional policy to not certify a Private Loan if the student is not meeting Satisfactory Academic Progress standards. The University of Dayton is committed to helping students make responsible financing decisions and encourages students to instead, complete a Financial Aid Appeal.
