Federal Student Financial Aid Program
Federal financial aid programs are intended to provide financial assistance to students who, without such assistance, would be unable to meet educational costs at the University. Educational costs include tuition, fees, books, materials, and a reasonable allowance for living during the academic year. Eligibility for financial aid is determined using a federal formula as outlined by the U.S. Department of Education. In order to qualify for federal financial aid, you must be a U.S. citizen or permanent resident and enrolled for a minimum of six units each semester. Students who attend Five Branches University on an F-1 Visa (international students) are not eligible to participate in the federal financial aid program.
