Want More Financial Aid? Less than Full-time? Here’s How.

Want More Financial Aid? Are you less than full-time?

Financial aid awards are based on the number of credits you are enrolled in for the Fall 2018 semester. If you increase your enrollment to at least 12 credits, as a full-time student at Stockton, you may be qualified for more financial aid opportunities for the upcoming academic year if eligible*, including:

Federal Pell Grant Up to $4500 additional
State Tuition Aid Grant (TAG) Up to $7354
Federal Work Study Up to $2000
Supplemental Educational Opportunity Grant Up to $1000
Federal Direct Student Loans Up to $7500

Check your registration for the upcoming term on the goStockton Portal. To ensure that you maximize your financial aid, as well as get the courses you need to stay on track to graduate in a timely manner, I would like to encourage you to register for additional credits as soon as possible.

You can also contact the Bursar’s Office at 609-652-4597 to make payment arrangements or contact our office if you have questions about how your financial aid awards are affected based on the number of credits you are enrolled in for the Fall 2018 semester.
