Adult Students

This page is designed to provide resources for undergraduate students whose path to college did not take a traditional route.  The Adult Student Outreach Coordinator can help you find any campus resources you need.  Students obtaining a second Bachelor's Degree are considered Special Students.

Applying for Financial Aid

There is no separate application or different rules for adult students; however, there is some important information students should consider regarding financial aid issues.  For more information, visit Student Aid on the Web or

Loan Limits

There are annual and aggregate limits on Federal Direct Loans.  Students attending part time could possiby reach their loan limits before the end of their degree if they are borrowing the maximum loans every year.  Budget carefully and borrow only what you need to make sure you will have enough funding for your entire education.

Pell limits

As of July 1, 2012, Congress set a limit of 12 full time semesters for the Pell Grant.  This affects all students receiving a Pell Grant.

SAP Concerns

Be aware of Satisfactory Academic Progress policies.  If you have questions regarding your eligibility for aid due to SAP guidelines, please contact the Financial Aid Office.

Special Circumstances

If the FAFSA information reflects income information which is no longer true due to a job loss or a loss of benefits, the Financial Aid Office may be able to make some adjustments to the FAFSA.  In addition, your Financial Aid Administrator may be able to increase aid due to expenses such as child care costs.  Contact the Financial Aid Office for more information.
