To receive aid from any of the federal student aid programs administered by MUIH Office of Financial Aid, a student must meet all of the following criteria:

  • Be a U.S. citizen or eligible noncitizen
  • Have a high school diploma or a recognized equivalent such as a General Education Development (GED) certificate, or completed a high school education in an approved homeschool setting and have a bachelor’s degree
  • Enroll at least half-time (3 credits) as a regular student in an eligible degree-seeking program
  • Register (or have registered) with the Selective Service, if required
  • Have a valid Social Security number
  • Meet satisfactory academic progress (SAP) standards
  • Not be in default on any federal student loan nor owe money (overpayment) on a federal student grant; and
  • Not exceed the lifetime aggregates or annual loan limits without documentation that the debt has been reaffirmed.

Be advised that a federal or state conviction for any offense involving the possession or sale of illegal drugs, during a period enrollment for which a student is receiving Title IV financial aid, will affect the eligibility for federal financial aid.
