Academic Year for Students Receiving Federal Student Aid (FSA)

Students interested in Federal Student Aid (FSA) must establish the academic year during which they wish to receive aid. The academic year at Grantham is two (2) 16-week semesters long; each semester contains two (2) eight (8)-week class sessions. On the Declaration of Intent (DOI) form, students select the month their academic year begins; it then continues for the following eight (8) consecutive months. Each semester runs for 16 consecutive weeks. Once a student has completed a DOI form, the dates for all four (4) class sessions in their academic year are fixed. Students who have established an academic year for financial aid purposes always begin their semesters on the first Wednesday of the month. The first session in the semester begins on that day. The second session of the semester begins on the Wednesday immediately following the end of the first session.

The table below provides dates for Grantham University sessions open to students receiving FSA and shows how they are combined into semesters and academic years.
