Enrollment Status For Federal Student Aid

You must be enrolled as a regular student in order to receive financial aid. Federal programs use the following to determine enrollment status:

  • 1 to 5 credit hours = less-than-half-time enrollment
  • 6 to 8 credit hours = half-time enrollment
  • 9 to 11 credit hours = three-quarter-time enrollment
  • 12 or more credit hours = full-time enrollment

You are not required to be enrolled full-time to receive assistance under the federal programs. Federal aid may be prorated to fit the enrollment status above.
