Part-Time Aid Financial Aid for Part-time Students Financial aid is available for part-time students, including loans and grants; however some grants are prorated. Grants that would be prorated are Washington State Need Grant, Pell Grant, and the College Bound Scholarship. Some scholarships require full-time enrollment, and students should research the requirements of any scholarships they are receiving prior to enrolling part-time. Half-time and three-quarter time Enrollment (Undergraduates) For Fall and Spring semesters, students enrolled in 6-8 credits will be considered half-time and 9-11 credits will be considered three-quarter time. Students are eligible for federal loans being enrolled in school half-time or above. Pell and State Need Grants are also available but will be prorated down to 75% for three-quarter time and 50% for half-time enrollment. Students enrolled in less than six credits are ineligible for financial aid, with the possible exception of the Federal Pell Grant. Half-time Enrollment (Graduates) Graduate students are not eligible for State and Federal aid grant funding but may receive Federal loan funding. For Fall and Spring semesters, students enrolled in 5-9 credits will be considered half-time. Because these grants must be prorated, students who are enrolled less than full-time three weeks prior to the beginning of the semester will find a new posting in their myWSU To-Do Lists called a Fall (or Spring) Enrollment Verification Form. This form must be completed once the student has finalized registration; it may be submitted online or downloaded and completed. Aid will not release until the form has been processed.
