2016-2017 Undergraduate Catalog > Financial Aid > Maximum Time Frame
Undergraduate students are limited to a total of 180 attempted credits toward their first undergraduate degree for financial aid purposes. This includes any transfer credits, failed classes, and classes which a student withdraws from after the drop/add period has ended. Students will not be eligible for financial aid warning or financial aid probation once they have reached their maximum time.
Once a student completes all the academic requirements for their program, the student is considered to have completed the degree program and is no longer eligible for further federal aid for that program.
The maximum time frame for Pennsylvania State grant eligibility is the equivalent of 8 full-time semesters.
