Financial Aid

How will 8-week modules affect my veterans education benefits?

Students with federal veterans education benefits should inform their advisor of this as they register. Basic Allowance for Housing (BAH) is determined by a student’s number of hours and length of term. Enrolling in courses with varying start and end dates can impact BAH. Please contact the Veteran Certifying Official for more information.

How many hours should I take to qualify for financial aid?

The amount of financial aid received is based on the number of hours of enrollment within a specific term. Some students may qualify for federal funds by registering for even just one course for the term. Federal loans require a minimum of 6 hours to disburse.

The format is as follows:

  • 12+ Hours: Full Time
  • 9-11 Hours: 3/4 Time
  • 6-8 Hours: 1/2 Time
  • Less than 6 hours: Less than half time
