Financial Aid Eligibility for Certificate Programs

Students taking certificate programs as a stand-alone program are not eligible for federal aid.  However, state, institutional, and private aid may still be available.  This restriction does not apply to students who are taking certificate programs as a part of larger degree programs or to teacher certification and graduate Addiction Studies students.
