Federal financial aid may be available to Andrews degree-seeking students if the following conditions are met:

  • A student must be admitted to a program that leads to an associate’s, bachelor’s or graduate degree. If the program leads to a certificate or credits are taken for transfer to another university degree, the student is not eligible for aid for that course.
  • The courses are registered by the drop/add date for the on-campus Fall or Spring semester.
  • A minimum of 6 credits are registered.
  • The courses are completed within the semester they are registered.
  • When registering for self-paced courses as a degree-seeking student, it is important to speak to your Financial Aid Advisor regarding your plans. Your course load determines your Financial Aid eligibility.

Financial aid from sources other than Andrews University may be applied toward the costs of self-paced courses as long as the student is taking an equivalent number of credits on-campus.  Federal financial aid is not available to guest students or non-degree students.
