  • Demonstrate financial need (for most programs)
  • Be a U.S. citizen or eligible non-U.S. citizen with a valid Social Security number. Federal regulations and University policy limit financial assistance available to non-U.S. citizens
  • Be registered with the U.S. Selective Service, if you are male between the ages of 18 and 25.
  • Be enrolled at least half-time (for most programs)
  • Have a high school diploma, General Educational Development (GED) certificate or a state-recognized equivalent, a high school education in a home-school setting approved under state law; or enrolling in an eligible career pathways program.
  • Make Satisfactory Academic Progress toward a degree program.
  • Use aid only for educational purposes.
  • Not owe a refund on a federal grant or be in default on any federal educational loan.
