April 6, 2007, Newsletter Issue #11: Financial Aid For Distance Education Programs

Tip of the Week

One of the requirements to receive federal financial aid funds is to be enrolled in an approved program of study. In most cases, the government does not provide financial aid for enrolling in correspondence, telecommunications or other distance education types of programs. An exception to this rule is when the courses are part of a degree program (associateís, bachelorís or graduate degrees) and through an approved educational institution. If your school does not provide federal financial aid for the distance education programs they offer, check with the financial aid office to see what other options you can explore include private student loans.
