Information for nondegree students
If you’re taking courses at IUPUI or IUPUC with the goal of being admitted to a degree program or eligible certificate program, and you’re interested in receiving federal loans, you’ll need to fulfill additional requirements after filing your FAFSA.
Be sure you meet the requirements
You must meet satisfactory academic progress standards.
You must be taking courses that are prerequisites (required) for admission to an eligible program. An academic advisor in the department or school where the program is located must verify your participation in these courses each semester that you request aid.
Your enrollment during the verified semester must match the coursework listed on your verification form. You must be taking enough prerequisites to be equal to or greater than half time (6 credits for undergraduates and 4 credits for graduate students).
Coursework that isn’t listed or verified won’t be included when we determine your enrollment status. If you enroll in additional coursework during the semester, you’ll still be eligible for aid only after the minimum half-time enrollment requirement is met with verified prerequisites.
