Can I Get Financial Aid as a Part-Time Student?
Generally, the Financial Aid Office will pay your financial aid based on the amount of credits you are enrolled in on tuition due date. An exception is the PELL Grant which sometimes pays a small amount for less-than-half-time enrollment. Classes must be taken for credit, not audited, to count toward financial aid.
