Sweet Summer Deal
The Sweet Summer Deal (SSD) offered through Summer Sessions & Lifelong Learning (SSLL), and eLearning and Distance Education pays tuition for up to four 2014 undergraduate SSLL and/or eLearning credits beyond ten. So, if you register for 14 SSLL and/or eLearning undergraduate credits at UAF this summer and you successfully apply for the Sweet Summer Deal you will pay tuition for only ten credits and SSD will pay the tuition for the other four credits. AND if you take advantage of the Sweet Summer Deal and are living in campus housing, UAF Residence Life will provide a reduction on your summer housing cost of $100/SSD credit to a maximum of $400.
Any student with a minimum of a 2.0 GPA (cumulative and current semester) who is registered for more than ten SSLL and/or eLearning undergraduate credits during Summer 2014 can apply for the Sweet Summer Deal. SSD does NOT require that you be a degree-seeking student at UAF or have evidence of financial need.
Courses offered through Summer Sessions and/or eLearning are eligible for the Sweet Summer Deal. Courses offered by Summer Sessions can be identified by a section number starting with 'F' and followed by numbers. Courses offered by eLearning and Distance Education can be identified by a section number starting with 'U' and followed by numbers.
Ah yes, the catch. Okay so your application has been approved; now you must complete all your summer courses with a minimum of a C grade (2.0) in each course by August 15.
What happens if you don’t meet that requirement?
You will be charged for the tuition credits covered by SSD. If you also took advantage of the SSD housing discount offered by Residence Life, you will need to repay that amount by August 28.
You can apply as soon as you have registered for your SSLL and/or eLearning classes. Complete the online application by May 20, 2014. When your application is reviewed you will receive an email from SSLL indicating whether you have been approved for the Sweet Summer Deal.
SSLL also offers a tuition award for three credits. Can I take advantage of the Sweet Summer Deal and the SSLL Tuition Award program?
No, unfortunately you cannot apply for both programs. The SSLL tuition award program is offered to continuing UAF undergraduate students who have maintained a minimum 2.5 gpa and can demonstrate financial need. The Sweet Summer Deal is not restricted to UAF students nor is there any requirement to show financial need.
Don't forget that there is in-state tuition for everyone in the summer!
