Eligibility for assistance depends upon many factors. Being eligible does not guarantee you will receive an award since award selection criteria are not the same as eligibility criteria. However, before you receive an award, you must first be eligible. To be eligible to receive financial aid, you must :
  1. be a U.S. citizen or an eligible non-citizen
  2. be a high school graduate or have earned an equivalency 
  3. be enrolled as a regular student in an eligible program
  4. be making satisfactory academic progress
  5. have a valid social security number 
  6. sign a statement confirming your intent to use aid only for educational purposes 
  7. sign a statement certifying that you are not in default and do not owe a refund on a Title IV grant
  8. sign a statement of Selective Service Registration Compliance
Financial assistance from most Federal programs is based on need. Your award depends on your and your family’s ability to meet college costs. State and Federal programs have separate formulas for determining the family’s ability to contribute to college costs.
