Important Information for Financial Aid Students

Effective Fall 2014, students receiving financial aid no longer need to have 12 hours at the beginning of the term in order to receive the maximum award by the end of the term.  You will still receive 100% of your financial aid as long as you have 12 credits or more (in your curriculum) by the end of the term AND attend all of your courses.  You will only receive financial aid for coursework that is required in your curriculum.  You will be allowed to add classes throughout the term and your financial aid will increase accordingly.

Your academic advisor may suggest that you initially register for less than 12 hours, especially if you are taking developmental math (DMA) and/or developmental English (DRE).  This will ensure that you have enough financial aid to cover tuition & bookstore purchases for the additional classes that you will need throughout the term.

*(Note that this does not apply to students receiving GI Bill benefits. In most cases, VA students should still be enrolled for 12 or more credits at the start of the term).
