Financial Aid Eligibility For Majors and/or Degrees


How do I know my major and/or degree is eligible for financial aid?


Students must be enrolled in an approved degree or certificate program to be eligible for financial aid. Students who are visiting/transient, high school, dual credit, or are admitted as non-credit (continuing education) are not eligible for financial aid. 

An eligible degree or certificate program refers to a program of organized instruction or study that leads to an academic, professional, or vocational degree or certificate, or other recognized educational credential.

For the program to be considered eligible, it must provide at least 600 clock hours, 16 semester or trimester hours, or 24 quarter hours of instruction offered during a minimum of 15 weeks of instruction.
