The Financial Aid Process for the Online Degree Completion Program Gallaudet University and Federal Financial Aid Programs (Federal Stafford, PLUS, Perkins, Work Study, PELL Grants and SEOG Grants) may be used to cover on-line (telecommunications) courses with certain restrictions. Students doing Online Degree Completion Program (ODCP) may be considered for most types of institutional and federal need-based financial aid funds if they are enrolled at least half-time (6 credits) in either one 8-week session, or over two consecutive 8-week sessions. The "semester" for ADP students is considered to be two 8-week sessions (or 16 weeks), during which at least 6 credits (or more) are attempted. Enrollment for at least 6 credits must be documented before financial aid eligibility can be established.
ODCP students' financial aid review will be based on the results of the FAFSA and other applications and will consider the applicable costs for tuition, fees, and books/supplies. Online study costs do not include living expenses, travel, or personal expenses. Financial aid awarded will be disbursed directly to students' university accounts as a credit to charges, and may be refunded to students if funds are greater than account charges. In the case of Stafford Loans, the disbursement(s) will be made after the drop deadline for students enrolled half-time (6 credits) for one 8-week session, or after the student has begun the second of two consecutive 8-week sessions. Please note: any financial aid awarded for two consecutive sessions will be canceled if a student drops, withdraws, or otherwise does not "attend" the second 8-week session. Students who begin a session but later withdraw may have their financial aid reduced or canceled, based on the date of withdrawal. To get the above forms and other information pertaining to financial aid, please review the financial aid website in full.
