General eligibility requirements
In order to be eligible for financial aid, an applicant must be a United States citizen or an eligible non-citizen enrolled or accepted for enrollment in an eligible program. Additionally, applicants may receive financial aid if they
- maintain satisfactory academic progress,
- comply with Federal Selective Service Law,
- are not in default on any educational loans,
- do not owe a refund on any federal grants or loans to any institution, or
- did not obtain a previous bachelor's degree at any U.S. or foreign institution.
Financial aid awards are subject to change if any of the factors used to calculate eligibility from the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) change after the date of original application.
Examples of factors that impact eligibility include increases in income, changes in family size, and/or adjustment in the number of family members enrolled in college. Students are strongly advised to consult with the Financial Aid office if they are contemplating a change in enrollment status.
