Can I get a scholarship/grant?
Eligibility for federal student aid is determined on the basis of financial need in conjunction with several other factors. The Office of Scholarships and Student Aid determines what you are eligible to receive based on your expected family contribution (EFC). To receive financial aid, you must meet the following criteria:
Have financial need (not part of the criteria for some loans)
Have a high school diploma or a General Education Development (GED) certificate or pass a test approved by the Department of Education
Be enrolled in an eligible degree or certificate program
Be a U. S. citizen or eligible non-citizen
Have a valid social security number
Register with the Selective Service (if applicable)
Maintain satisfactory academic progress once enrolled in school
If applicable, may not be in default on a loan previously received for college expenses nor owe a refund on a scholarship, grant or loan from a previous enrollment period.
