Financial Aid Eligibility Requirements

To be eligible for most federal financial aid programs, you must meet the following eligibility requirements:

  • Have financial need, except for some loan programs.
  • Have a high school diploma or General Education Development (GED) Certificate.
  • Be enrolled or accepted for enrollment as a regular student working towards a degree or certificate in an eligible program.
  • Be a U.S. citizen or eligible non-citizen.
  • Have a valid Social Security Number.
  • Maintain satisfactory academic progress.
  • Sign a statement of educational purpose and a certification statement indicating that you are not in default on a student loan or owe an overpayment on a grant.   Both statements are on the FAFSA.
    Register with the Selective Service, if required. You can register or check your registration online at their web site at www.sss.gov.
  • Never been convicted under a federal or state law for the sale or possession of illegal drugs.  A drug-related conviction does not necessarily make a student ineligible for aid.  A student with a prior drug-related conviction must complete a dederal worksheet to determine if the conviction affects aid eligibility.
  • A conviction for any drug law violation under any federal or state law involving the possession or sale of illegal drugs, during a period of enrollment for which a student was receiving Title IV or HEA program funds, will result in the loss of eligibility for any assistance.
