Certified Post-Baccalaureate students (those pursuing a second bachelor’s degree or a post-bachelor’s certificate) are not eligible to receive undergraduate need-based aid. However, you are eligible for scholarships, Federal Direct Loans, private education loans, and student employment. The U.S. Department of Education uses the FAFSA to determine your eligibility for federal direct loans and federal work-study. Many scholarships and scholarship programs also require a completed FAFSA.

If Work-Study eligible, Work-Study can be offered to certified Post-Baccalaureate students. Post-Baccalaureate students who are not Work-Study eligible, there are employment opportunities that are available and can represent a significant contribution to a student’s ability to fund their education.

When a Post-Baccalaureate student applies for admission, they are admitted as a non- certified Post-Baccalaureate student. To become certified and to qualify for federal aid, you must talk to your academic department or program. Your academic counselor then fills out forms with the Registrars office to have the student certified.
