Graduate Student Loan Information

Important Changes in Federal Student Aid for Graduate and Professional Students

Graduate and professional students must be enrolled in a degree program and a minimum of 4.5 credit hours during a semester to be half-time status. The definition of half-time status is important in two ways for financial aid purposes:

1). Students must be registered at least half-time to be eligible for federal financial aid (student loans),

and

2). Students must be registered at least half-time to qualify for an in-school deferment on their prior federal student loans.
