For comprehensive up to date eligibility for Federal Student Aid Programs visit www.studentaid.ed.gov. Like New York State financial aid regulations, Federal regulations place eligibility standards on academic progress and program pursuit. The accompanying chart illustrates Federal financial aid eligibility regulations. As an example, a student must accrue at least 30 credits and earn a GPA of 2.00 before receiving the fifth Federal financial-aid payment. Students who fail to meet the academic progress and program pursuit requirements will be disqualified from Federal financial aid until they resolve their academic difficulty.
