How are summer courses reported on my transcript?

What is tuition for Hiram’s summer school?

Tuition is $390 per credit hour. There is a summer comprehensive fee of $30.

What financial aid is available for summer session?

Because financial aid eligibility is specific to the individual, it isn’t possible to provide a simple answer.  However, students should know that summer financial aid is limited to federal financial aid and as a general rule, students must be enrolled at least half-time (6 semester hours for undergraduates, 4 semester hours for graduates).  Students interested in summer financial aid should have a valid FAFSA on file for both the 2010-2011 and 2011-2012 academic year and complete the Summer 2011 Financial Aid Application, available online at www.hiram.edu/finaid/financialaiddocuments.html, as well as in Financial Aid Office.  Please contact the Financial Aid Office with any questions you may have at 330.569.5107 or via email at financialaid@hiram.edu.

How will I be billed for summer courses?

Bills are issued approximately one month prior to the start of the term. Students may pay their bills in a variety of ways, including online.

Is summer housing available?

Yes. Contact the Residential Education Office for more information at 330.569.5232.
