Distance Education/Online Students

Students who are enrolled in a program where they take all of their courses on-line are eligible to use federal financial aid (PELL and SEOG grants; Stafford, PLUS, and Perkins Loans) for which they qualify as per the FAFSA.

However, any student who is taking more than 50% of her or his courses on-line in a single semester, and any student who is enrolled in a program that is delivered on-line or predominately on-line, is not eligible to use a PHEAA state grant for which they might otherwise qualify.

On-line and Virtual Campus students are subject to the same financial aid regulations and conditions as any student taking courses on campus, including the requirement that they must make satisfactory academic progress toward a degree to continue to be eligible to receive financial aid.
