Harvey Mudd students are only eligible for the equivalent of four years of financial aid.
These eight semesters may be taken at any time. Therefore, if you take a leave of absence and do not receive financial aid elsewhere, you are still eligible for financial aid until your eighth semester. If you need additional aid beyond an eighth semester, you must submit a written appeal, including your academic plan, to the Office of Financial Aid.
Students requiring an additional semester are eligible for federal financial aid. However, the Harvey Mudd Scholarship funds and other college funding is contingent upon Office of Financial Aid approval of your written appeal.
