Your financial aid eligibility will be reviewed after you register for a co-op course. If your awards change, an email notification will be sent to your U-Mail account. If your enrollment changes, it is your responsibility to notify the Student Financial Aid Office.
If you are enrolled in an official UND Cooperative Education Program you are eligible for financial aid consideration equivalent to a full-time student as defined by UND policy.
Exceptions to this policy:
Eligibility for the Federal Pell Grant and the North Dakota State Grant is related to actual credit hours of enrollment, award amounts are prorated based on actual credit hour enrollment.
The Pell Grant requires a minimum enrollment of 1 credit hour.
The North Dakota State Grant requires a minimum enrollment of 3 credit hours.
The National Merit Scholarship require a minimum enrollment of 12 credit hours per semester.
The North Dakota Academic Scholarship and North Dakota Career and Technical Scholarship required a minimum enrollment of 12 credit hours per semester for the first two terms of enrollment and 15 credit hours per semester for each term thereafter.
If you receive assistance from a source outside the University (BIA, Tribal Grants, Vocational Rehabilitation, National Guard, Veterans Benefits, etc.) you should contact the appropriate agency regarding their award and enrollment policies.
Keep in mind that registration in a CO-OP course could result in a reduction in your anticipated aid and that you will still be responsible for payment of the difference by the due date to avoid a late payment penalty.
