Things to Know:

Pre-Doctoral Fellowships – 5820:

This excludes fee remissions i.e. student support that is restricted to paying student fees. Expense for this category is to be processed through SIS financial aid. The resulting award disbursement to the student will be deducted from the GL account.

Standard exceptions:

  1. Enrollment in one approved thesis or dissertation course such as G901 is considered “full-time.”  Definition of full-time is based on campus-wide guidelines published by the IUB Registrar. The IUB Registrar maintains the list of approved thesis and dissertation courses. A list of financial aid approved thesis and dissertation courses is available on the OSFA Intranet.
  2. C&G proposal that has separate definition of required enrollment.  Student must still be enrolled in at least 1 credit hour.
  3. Definition of degree-seeking based on SIS “Program” in which a student is enrolled.
  • The best way to ensure that a fellowship processed through SIS will be approved by the financial aid office is to enter the awards prior to the semester disbursement date (10 days before the first day of classes each semester).
  • For non-enrolled pre-doctoral students, who have no intention of enrolling in the summer, expense for this category is to be processed through FIS using the DV process.  In the College all summer fellowship students must enroll in a minimum of 1 unit.
  • Please contact the Office of Student Financial Assistance (OSFA), for questions.
