A postgraduate student is defined as a student who has previously received an undergraduate degree and is not
admitted to a graduate or professional school. Postgraduate enrollment in prerequisite courses for Graduate
School enrollment will limit the types of aid for which a student may be considered. By definition, a post-graduate
student is not enrolled in a degree-seeking program. Eligibility for federal student aid requires enrollment in a
degree-seeking program or eligible certificate program. See a financial aid officer for details.
Full-time enrollment for financial aid purposes includes at least 12 hours per long semester (Fall/Spring) or six
hours per summer session. This could include May term, Summer 1, and/or Summer 2 for a combination of 12
hours during the summer sessions. The May Term is part of the summer session.
