Federal Financial Aid Guidelines for GOT Students
Students who are in the GOT program and awaiting admission into the Nursing or Radiography program should note the following information regarding federal financial aid:
150% RULE—you must complete the program of study within 150% of the required credits.
Example: If a program is 48 credit hours, you must complete the program within 72 credit hours. To avoid jeopardizing your financial aid, you can:
