- Can I receive financial aid if I only need to carry three credits?

Federal regulations require students to be enrolled at least half-time in courses that apply toward their degree to be eligible for federal aid. Half-time status for Graduate students at SJU is 6 credits per semester.
No, you may accept your aid via mySJU.
Aid is renewable by filing a FAFSA each year and maintaining satisfactory academic progress.
The summer semester is made up of two sessions and federal rules remain the same during the summer. In order to be eligible for federal aid, a student must be registered at least half time (6 credits) in courses that apply toward their degree during the semester they receive aid. Six credits in one session or three credits in summer session one and three credits in summer session two will satisfy this regulation as long as the courses apply toward their degree.
Graduate students enrolled in a degree seeking program, may be eligible for $20,500 in Federal Direct Stafford Loans per academic year. Students enrolled in a Post-Degree Certificate Program may be eligible for $12,500 in Federal Direct Stafford Loans per academic year. Eligibility may be determined after reviewing the FAFSA and loan history.
