Aid is always packaged based on fulltime enrollment (12+ credits undergraduate and 9+ credits graduate). To prevent late adjustments and disbursement delays, submit and Enrollment Revision form at least 3-4 weeks before the term. If no revision form is submitted, your aid will be locked and adjusted on our Census Date each term*.
Federal Loans require minimum halftime enrollment (6-8 credits undergraduate and 5-8 credits graduate). Even if you are halftime, your loan eliglbity may change if the fulltime amounts do not fit into your revised budget/need level.
Grants and scholarships have their own specific enrollment requirements. At less than fulltime some will pay the full amounts, some will pay at reduced amounts, others will be canceled. We encourage you to contact the Office of Financial Aid and the Scholarship Office to find out how your aid will be impacted.
If you will be less than halftime, be sure to stay in contact with your loan servicer. Halftime enrollment is required in order to keep federal loans in the “in school deferment status”. Find more on our Loan Repayment page.
*If you drop to less than fulltime after census, have no outstanding holds or requirements, and your aid has not yet been paid, please contact the Office of Financial Aid. An eligibility review and adjustment may be required.
