Eligibility Requirements and Criteria

Student eligibility requirements, criteria for selecting recipients from the group of eligible applicants, criteria for determining the amount of a student’s award, and criteria for continued student eligibility.

This information appears in the Messiah College catalog, and additional information for almost all financial aid programs available to students at Messiah College can be found on the Messiah College Financial Aid website.

Regular Student in an Eligible Program

It is particularly important for all students to understand the requirement that a person must be enrolled as a regular student in an eligible program in order to receive Federal Student Aid funds and most forms of Messiah College institutional financial aid.  A regular student is someone who is enrolled or accepted for enrollment in an eligible institution for the purpose of obtaining a degree or certificate offered by the school. Persons taking courses while not accepted into a degree or certificate program are not eligible for most forms of financial aid.

Audit credits do not count toward your enrollment for financial aid purposes.
