Your financial aid eligibility is based on your enrollment status, your classification as a student and the number of hours you are taking.
For financial aid purposes:
Only graduate level courses you take are included in the calculation of your financial aid eligibility. Undergraduate coursework is not included.
A graduate student who is not admitted to a degree program is typically not eligible to receive financial aid, except in the case where undergraduate coursework is a necessary prerequisite to enter a graduate program. In such a case, the student may apply for a one-time Federal Direct Loan for one 12-month period at the undergraduate loan level.
