Financial Aid by Credit Hour

September 1, 2016

Questioner: Laura Jackson

Posed to: Jennifer Kane, Interim Associate Dean, College of Education and Human Services

Is it true that students taking 12 credit hours will receive only 80% of their financial aid funding?

COEHS Interim Associate Dean, Jennifer Kane, provided a response from the floor:

Student grants are adjusted based on the number of credit hours they take, with the expected number of credit hours being 15 credit hours. Student scholarships are not affected by the 15 credit hour rule.
