Half-time and three-quarter time enrollment
For the academic year, students must be enrolled at least half-time to be eligible for federal loans.
- Undergraduate students: Half-time enrollment is 6-8 credits per semester. three-quarter enrollment is 9-11 credits per semester.
- Graduate students: Half-time enrollment is 5-9 credits per semester. 10+ credits is considered full-time.
Students will be eligible for federal loans so long as they are enrolled at least half-time. Pell Grants and State Need Grants are also available but will be prorated to 75% for three-quarter time enrollment and 50% for half-time enrollment.
Students will be ineligible for financial aid if they are enrolled in 5 credits or less and are not receiving Pell Grant or College Bound Scholarship.
Graduate students are not eligible for State and Federal aid grant funding but may receive Federal loan funding.
