Federal Student Loans 

You must meet certain requirements to qualify for Federal Student Aid, see requirements. If you are eligible for federal aid, you can apply for assistance by completing the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). You must complete FAFSA yearly to be offered assistance.

*Satisfactory Academic Progress (SAP)  If you are failing SAP then you are no longer eligible for Federal or Institutional Financial Aid at VCU, such as Federal Direct Loans and scholarships and grants. If a student is failing SAP, then they may look to a private loan as it is one the few options remaining. However if you are failing SAP, it is important to make your lender aware of this so that they may offer you a loan that does not require good SAP standing.
