You are headed somewhere fast! We are here to help you plan!

Your financial aid eligibility will change as soon as you complete 130 credit hours (or 145 credit hours for a student in the College of Engineering and Applied Science).

Students enrolled in a concurrent bachelor's and master's degree program will be automatically switched to a "graduate student" status once they have completed 130 credit hours (or 145 credit hours for a student in the College of Engineering and Applied Science). Undergraduate and graduate students are considered for different types and/or amounts of financial aid, so your award will be adjusted when your student status changes.

The 130 credit hours includes:

  • Completed credit hours
  • Incomplete credit hours
  • In-progress credit hours
  • Transfer units (including AP credit)

Aid for Graduate Students

Graduate students are primarily offered student loans in the form of Federal Unsubsidized Loans or Federal Graduate PLUS Loans, but there may be additional funding available through specific graduate departments.
