Combined Degree Programs – Federal Aid Eligibility: Graduate Students

Students enrolled in a combined undergraduate/graduate program are considered undergraduate for the first 90 credits for the purposes of awarding federal student aid, excluding students enrolled in the B.S./D.O.* program. Upon satisfactory completion of 90 undergraduate credits, they become eligible to receive federal student loans at the graduate level. Students must apply for the graduate portion of their combined program by contacting the Office of Graduate Admissions. Students who have been awarded an undergraduate academic scholarship, and continue to meet renewal criteria, will receive the scholarship while enrolled in the undergraduate portion of the program only, up to 90 credits. After transition to the graduate level (91+ credits; excluding B.S./D.O.*), students may be eligible for a variety of special scholarship programs depending on the enrolled program of study, cumulative GPA, and other factors. In order to receive graduate-level financial aid, the student must also update the FAFSA student data fields from undergraduate to graduate.
