Financial aid applicants must meet the federal eligibility requirements for aid, and if asked, provide documents as needed to support eligibility:
- You must be a U.S. citizen or eligible non-citizen.
- You must be accepted and currently active in a graduate or professional degree program.
- For most financial aid programs, and for loan deferment, you must enroll in your program at least half-time and in courses that are fully applicable to your graduate or professional degree program. Audited courses, and courses that do not apply to your degree requirements (including undergraduate courses taken for undergraduate credit) are not considered part of your graduate enrollment base for financial aid purposes.
- You must be in good academic standing and making satisfactory academic progress in your course of study.
- You must not be in default on any federal loan or owe a repayment on any federal grant.
- You must comply with all federal regulations governing Selective Service registration and use of funds for educational purposes.
- You must meet all federal eligibility requirements. To learn more about these eligibility requirements, including information about any prior drug conviction and federal student aid eligibility, please refer to the FAFSA questions and answers at http://studentaid.ed.gov/eligibility.
