One of the most commonly used sources of support is the low-interest Federal Stafford Loan. To be eligible for federal funding, you must be a U.S. citizen or permanent resident, enrolled at least half time, and pursuing a degree or certificate program. Loan amounts depend upon several factors: enrollment status, need, and residency. Applicants must complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FASFA).

. Please note that financial aid is available only for degree seeking students.
