Students might not be able to receive federal student aid if you have been convicted of selling or possessing illegal drugs, if the drug offense for which you were convicted occurred while you were receiving federal student aid (grants, loans, and /or work study).
If you have been convicted in the past, this does not automatically mean that you are ineligible for federal student aid. When completing your FAFSA, a worksheet is available to help determine your eligibility. Please click here to complete the worksheet to accompany your FAFSA.
*TIP: You should complete and submit your FAFSA even if you are not eligible for federal student aid. You may be eligible for financial aid from other sources.
