My birthday is next month, will my eligibility change?

A student’s age in regards to eligibility will be determined by their age on the first day of the state fiscal year (July 1st). When a student’s age allows them to be eligible for a specific amount of funding on July 1st, they will remain eligible (as long as GPA is maintained and applicable forms are submitted) for that funding despite any change in age until the start of the next state fiscal year.  

Students become permanently ineligible for funds when they reach 26 years of age on or before the first day of the state fiscal year (July 1st).
