Billing and Financial Aid Information:
• Students registered for the intersession will be billed at a per credit hour rate on December 14, 2020 with a bill due date of January 20, 2021.
• Students who are also registered for spring 2021 courses will be billed for those spring courses on December 21, 2020 with the same bill due date of January 20, 2021.  Students can pay the intersession bill and the spring 2021 bill at the same time.
 Students should be careful not to use the intersession term to reduce your spring 2021 course load, especially if it takes you below fulltime status for the spring 2021 semester and jeopardizes your financial aid eligibility as a fulltime student.
• No Canisius Academic, Canisius need based grants, Federal Aid (Pell, SEOG, Federal Loans), or NYS awards (TAP) will be awarded in the intersession semester.
• Students may use any spring 2021 financial aid refund to pay towards the intersession.
• Students may apply and be eligible for private loans for the intersession semester.
