What Are the Financial Aid Eligibility Requirements?

Receiving financial aid for your college education isn’t as difficult as you might think. The financial aid eligibility requirements are straightforward, and McCann School of Business and Technology is here to help you every step of the way. 

Below is a list of the financial aid eligibility requirements. The first step is to ensure that you meet at least one of the following requirements:

  • You must be a United States citizen
  • Have a green card
  • Have an arrival-departure record
  • Have battered immigrant status
  • Have a T-Visa

If you meet at least one of the above requirements, you’re ready to move to the next steps. To be eligible for financial aid, you must:

  1. Have a high school Diploma, your GED or have completed a high school education in a state approved institution.
  2. Be enrolled in an eligible program towards an ASB/AST Degree (PA), ASO Degree (LA), Diploma or Certificate.
  3. If you’re male, you must register for the Selective Service.
  4. Have a valid Social Security number or Alien registration number.
  5. Not be in default on a federal student loan.
  6. Not owe a refund on a federal grant.
  7. Maintain satisfactory academic progress.

Before beginning the financial aid application process, you should first be sure that you’ve meet all of the above financial aid eligibility requirements. From there, visit StudentAid.Ed.org to learn more about the cost of college and to fill out the FAFSA. Remember, there are no income limits, so you will not automatically be refused financial aid if your income is above a certain level. It’s free to apply, so every applicant should complete the FAFSA and discover their options.

At times the FAFSA can be a little confusing and complicated, so we’ve set up a support team that you can call for help. Once you gather your tax information, you can call 866.801.1663 to talk to a Financial Services Representative who will help you fill out the application.

McCann's Commitment to Responsible Borrowing 

McCann School of Business and Technology is dedicated to finding ways to help students make responsible borrowing decisions and keep students’ debts to manageable levels. Borrow only what you need to cover the cost of tuition, fees and books to ensure you are not taking on more debt than necessary. Remember, you are expected to repay your loan plus interest. Acquiring too much loan debt may be detrimental to your long-term financial health. The less you borrow, the less you will have to repay after graduation.
