*Not including audited classes.
The following table shows the required minimum enrollment levels for major financial aid programs.
*Recipients of Maryland State Scholarships and Grants not listed can check enrollment requirements at http://www.mhec.state.md.us. Other scholarships may have enrollment requirements established by the donor or the scholarship coordinator.
Although some programs will permit less than half-time enrollment (as shown in the table above), the cost of attendance for less than half-time enrollment is limited to tuition, fees, books, and an allowance for transportation. Should you enroll as a less than half-time student, you may have a drastically reduced or no calculated need. In addition, educational loans enter repayment after a six-month (Federal Direct Loan) or nine-month (Federal Perkins Loan) grace period that begins when you drop below half-time enrollment.
