Financial Aid (Wellesley College Students Only)

Student Financial Services (SFS) will evaluate financial aid eligibility for Wellesley College students registered for Summer Term. No formal application is required, but students are expected to comply with any individual requests made by SFS.

For Summer Term, SFS will review financial aid eligibility as students register for courses and will release notices of aid eligibility (or revised eligibility) on a weekly basis beginning May 1, 2020. Final notices will be released the week after registration ends for each term.

Please note that financial aid is not available for costs associated with summer housing and meals. Additionally, financial aid eligibility is subject to change if registration changes.

Refund Policy

The deadline to drop a summer course is Monday, June 8 at 11:59 PM (through Workday). Students should double-check the class schedules, given the new block scheduling and length of term to ensure it works with their summer schedules.

  • Students who drop from a course by 11:59 pm on Monday, June 8 will receive a 100% refund of tuition and related fees. A Dropped course does not appear on the transcript. The visiting application fee of $50 is non-refundable.

  • Students who withdraw from a course after 11:59 pm on Monday, June 8 will not receive a refund of tuition and related fees. A withdrawn course appears on the transcript with a grade ‘WDR’.
