Subsidized and Unsubsidized Stafford Direct Loans are subject to annual limits and may be used to pay for costs of education (tuition and fees) in excess of your EFC (expected family contribution).

The Federal Pell Grant is available only to Acupuncture students who have not received a four-year post-secondary degree. This amount is determined by the U.S. Department of Education and your EFC.

Approval/Receipt of Aid/Graduate:  Students waiting for financial aid approval must follow the tuition schedule policy (see Tuition/Refund).  Students that are not registered at least half-time, withdraw or drop, will not be able to receive financial aid.  Additionally, students who withdraw or graduate must complete an Exit Interview by visiting the link:

Excess Money:  If financial aid received exceeds the amount due to the school after tuition and fees are paid, the student may choose one of two options:

  • The credit balance can be issued to the borrower within 14 calendar days after the date loans and grants are received.
  • The credit balance can be returned to the lender, reducing the amount borrowed, and interest paid.
