Your maximum period of eligibility depends on the target time to degree as follows:

  • 60 credits or one academic year of study makes you eligible for 9 months of financial aid.
  • Any period of study beyond a full academic year which lasts half of an academic year and provides 30 credits makes you eligible for 5 months of financial aid.
  • Your maximum period of eligibility is the calculated period of financial aid plus another 10 months of aid.
