In order to receive federal financial aid, you must be enrolled at least half-time, be a degree-seeking student and demonstrate reasonable academic progress toward graduation or completion. Also, you must not be in default on federal student loans and be a U.S. citizen or permanent resident.
This award is offered up to the maximum Cost of Attendance Budget based on your enrollment in the minimum number of credit hours required for your academic program and may be adjusted if your enrollment changes.
The total amount that you accept of your offered award will be divided equally among the semesters in which you have been awarded (i.e. Fall and Spring). Loans for one semester (fall graduate) will be disbursed in one payment within the semester awarded, less the Department of Education processing fees.
All first time federal student loan borrowers at Illinois Institute of Technology-Chicago Kent College of Law must complete Entrance Loan Counseling to learn about their rights and responsibilities of the loan programs. Students can complete this requirement online at studentloans.gov
Award adjustments will be made after the end of the add/drop period if a student exceeds their eligibility due to enrollment hours.
