Eligibility Requirements


In general, to be considered eligible to apply for financial aid a student must:

  1. Be a United States citizen or an eligible non-citizen.
  2. Be enrolled as at least a half-time student. (Half-time enrollment is a minimum of six credits in coursework leading to a degree or certificate and therefore excludes audited classes.) Fall or Spring Semester enrollment in a program of study abroad which has been approved by Daytona State, will be considered enrolled at the College for the purpose of applying for federal aid.

  4. Be enrolled in an eligible program of study, and be enrolled in courses required by that program. Eligible programs are post-secondary programs which lead to an AA, AAS, AS, BAS, or BS degree or an approved vocational or college credit certificate.
