What are the eligibility requirements for financial aid?

ou may be eligible to receive financial aid if you:

  • are a matriculated student, whether full-time or part-time;
  • are enrolled in an eligible program that is at least one year long and leads to a degree or certificate (some exceptions apply);
  • have registered with the Selective Service (if required to do so);
  • have a high school diploma or GED;
  • are not attending an elementary or secondary school;
  • are a United States citizen or an eligible noncitizen;
  • are not in default of any federal loan program; and do not owe a refund on any federal grant program.

For the Direct and PLUS loan programs, you must be enrolled at least half time (six credit hours).

For a Pell Grant, you must be a fully admitted, degree-seeking student enrolled in one or more credit hours.

For complicated eligibility questions, please contact the financial aid office.  It is recommended that you meet with a financial aid advisor during an available drop-in time.  Click here for the drop-in hours.
