Financial Aid

To be considered for financial aid, students must submit a Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) and a UIW Student Information Form every year, be accepted for admittance by the University, and enrolled in a degree-seeking program with at least half-time status to qualify for financial aid 

For students in the Extended Academic Programs (EAP), which includes the School of Professional Studies (formerly known as ADCaP), this will mean students enrolled in terms of eight weeks or less will not receive disbursements for federal loans until they attend half-time hours for the overall semester. For example, undergraduate students taking 3 hours in Term 1 and 3 hours in Term 2 will not receive loan funds until Term 2 begins.

A student is limited to a maximum of two courses per 8-week term due to the accelerated format. However, two courses in each of the two 8-week terms (the time frame of a traditional 16-week Fall or Spring semester) equals 12 hours for the semester and constitutes a full-time student load.

Enrollment Definitions (Minimum Credit Hours per Semester Needed)
