Tips to Stress Free Financial Aid

Please note these are federal requirements that Post University must follow:

  • An official high school transcript must be on file to receive financial aid for undergraduate students.

  • All required financial aid documents must be received. Check http://finaid.post.edu to review the status of your documents.

  • Financial aid is earned over a payment period which consists of two consecutive modules. Financial aid may need to be returned if the modules are not completed.

  • Successfully complete 67% of all attempted courses and maintain a 2.0 GPA if an Undergrad and a 3.0 GPA if a Graduate student.

  • Half-time enrollment is required to receive federal student loans:

    • For undergraduates, half-time is defined as 6 credits within the payment period (2 consecutive mods) or a semester

    • For graduates, half-time is defined as 3 credits within the payment period (2 consecutive mods)

  • Aid is disbursed each module in which there is enrollment. Aid will not be disbursed during periods of non-attendance.

  • Federal aid has limits that cannot be exceeded. Pell grant - Six full-time years. Loans - $31,000 for dependent students, $57,500 for independents. Borrow conservatively to have enough funds to finish your degree. To view your current outstanding loan balances please visit https://www.nslds.ed.gov/nslds/nslds_SA/
