State Aid Eligibility

Program Pursuit for graduate students who received their first state award during the 1981-82 award year or thereafter is based on the total number of semesters of previous participation in the program. Undergraduate payments are counted toward program pursuit for graduate students.

Academic Progress standards for graduate students are applicable only to a student’s semesters of graduate-level support. Whether or not a student has received state aid as an undergraduate will have no bearing in determining the student’s academic progress.

A student seeking his/her first graduate award from the same institution that he/she received his/her undergraduate degree would be evaluated for program pursuit on the basis of the last semester that he/she received state support as an undergraduate. A student seeking his/her first graduate award from a different institution would be considered a transfer student and therefore automatically eligible for the first graduate award. When the graduate full-time course load does not consist of credits (e.g., the clinical practicum courses), college documentation recording the student’s demonstrated program pursuit must support the student’s continued eligibility.
