It could also depend on the program. I am in nuclear med program and once I graduate end enter post bar ( many people refer to as intern), I will no longer be eligible for financial aid.. Meanwhile, they expect me to come up with 8G for the intern program 


few med programs will opt you out of financial aid… Yup. It’s bullshit but its what it is..

verg likely that program is listed as “post barrach(intern) program”

if that’s not what it is.. Possibly it has to do with income he makes..

if you make more, you are entitled to have less…

I have been to school for my undergrad (4 years), Master’s (1 2/2) and now for 2 post master’s degrees… and I have NEVER qualifed for a grant. at. all. 🙁  I still qualify for financial aid in the form of “loans” although, to me, that is not aid at all, its more of a burden. 

Sorry, I don’t have much advice for you, but there are some pretty wonky rules out there…

@vorpalette:  where in Michigan are You? I’m in nursing at hfcc because I’ve been in school so long and have an associates in management I have too many credit hours. They call it the 150% rule. Because I’ve completed 150% or more of the total required credit hours (even if they’re not nursing courses) I am not eligible for financial aid even though I paid out of pocket for the first 4 years of school. I appealed it once took a loan out big enough to cover most of the program and I won’t have to appeal again. Your Fiance will have to appeal every semester.

I’ve had to appeal financial aid for other reasons, and the form was very annoying and very much like busy work. I had to repeat it every single semester. I always got approved.
