What if I'm not attending full time?

All estimated award notifications are based on full time enrollment. Actual awards are posted to student accounts based on the following enrollment criteria:


  • Full time - 12 or more credit hours per semester
  • 3/4 time - 9-11 credit hours per semester
  • 1/2 time - 6-8 credit hours per semester
  • Less than 1/2 time - 1-5 credit hours per semester


You must be in at least 6 credit hours to be eligible for a Federal Student Loan, College Work-Study, or FSEOG. If you are eligible for Pell, your grant will be prorated based on your enrollment status.

Note: The amount of your award is an estimate based on information you supplied on your FAFSA. Actual amounts may be re-calculated based on credit load and adjustments may be required.
