Enrollment as a Post-Baccalaureate/Graduate Student

Your Offer of Financial Assistance is based on the tuition costs associated with the credits you indicate on the Post-Baccalaureate/Graduate Information Sheet (PDF). Should your actual enrollment change, please notify SFS or complete a Revision of Financial Aid Request form (PDF).

To receive financial aid, you must be enrolled at least half time each quarter. Half time is three credits for graduate students and six credits for post-baccalaureate students.

Courses that do not count toward your degree cannot be covered by financial aid; this includes media courses, audited courses, and 5000-level courses.

Credits are reviewed as of the fifth day of the quarter. Your enrollment at this point will be your financial aid enrollment. Some courses added between the fifth and tenth day (such as independent studies and internships) will also count toward your enrollment for the quarter. You must be in a program leading to a degree or one of the following certificate programs to be eligible for financial aid:

  • Initial teacher certification
  • Principal certification
  • School superintendent certification
  • School counseling certification
  • Program administrator certification
