Enrollment Requirement for Financial Aid


Enrollment requirement for financial aid 


How many credits do I need to receive financial aid?  


Enrollment (i.e., credit load) requirements may vary with each individual aid program. In your student e-Services, under the “Financial Aid” link, check the “Awards by Credit Level” to see how many credits are required for your individual financial aid package.  

When determining enrollment levels for financial aid, only undergraduate credits are included for undergraduate students and only graduate credits are included for graduate students. See "Financial Aid Enrollment Requirements" at Policies and Guidelines

NOTE: Whether you are an undergraduate or a graduate student, federal loans always require a minimum of six (6) credits of enrollment.
