Financial Aid Enrollment Levels

Financial aid awards are determined by the number of credits a student is enrolled for. All students are awarded based on the number of credits they indicated they would attend when working through the steps in the financial aid portal.  Full-time enrollment is not necessary to receive aid.

Adjustments to financial aid disbursements will be made based on the number of credits a student is enrolled in each term regardless of the information they entered in the financial aid portal.

Students must be in a minimum of 6 credits to receive Direct Loans.

Financial Aid will only pay for credits required for completion of your program of study.
