Qualifying for Aid

Distance learners are eligible for all financial aid opportunities, including federal and state loans, grants and scholarships.

To remain eligible for financial aid, you must:

  • Be admitted to BSU as a degree-seeking student. Federal regulations do not allow students to receive financial aid through BSU if admitted in a non-degree seeking status. Contact Admissions to change your status.
  • Carry a minimum of six credits of coursework per semester (some students qualify for a grant with fewer than six credits).
  • Register early each semester to avoid delays in receiving financial aid.
  • Maintain sufficient credits for your financial aid status. For example, if you receive aid as a full-time student, you must carry a full-time credit load (12 or more credits).
  • Complete all coursework before each semester end-date.

For scholarships, please submit your BSU Scholarship Biography Application each year before the deadline.
