What types of aid can I get?

There are a lot of options to pay for your education, and knowing what’s out there and what you qualify for can help you make the best financial decisions for your needs.


Loan Disbursement Rules

Federal regulations require a 30-day delay on first disbursements for first-time, first-year borrowers of subsidized and unsubsidized loans beginning the first semester enrolled at least half-time.




Satisfactory Academic Progress (SAP)

In addition to meeting other eligibility factors, you must make Satisfactory Academic Progress (SAP) towards the completion of your degree each year to qualify for financial aid. SAP includes policies regarding your GPA, credit completion, term completion and maximum credit requirements.
