Financial Aid Eligible Hours

Federal regulations stipulate that schools can only consider classes that count towards your degree requirements when awarding financial aid.  JMU applies this regulation to federal aid programs, state aid programs, university grant programs, and private educational loans.  Classes that can be counted when determining financial aid eligibility are those that:

  • Count toward your Degree or General Education requirements
  • Are required for your major
  • Are required for your minor
  • Fulfil your elective hours to attain a minimum of 120 credit hours
