What are the course-load requirements to receive financial aid?

Most aid programs are based on full-time enrollment (twelve hours for undergraduate students, nine hours for graduate students). Students may receive financial aid for less than full-time enrollment with the approval of their financial aid counselor. For some programs, assistance must be reduced proportionately for less than full-time enrollment.
