Eligibility Requirements for Federal & State Financial Aid

Federal and state guidelines require you to meet certain eligibility requirements to qualify for financial aid. In order to apply, you must:

  • Be admitted at Stevens Institute of Technology as a degree-seeking student.

  • Be a citizen or a permanent resident of the United States.

  • Be enrolled and attending courses. (Federal programs have varying enrollment requirements; check for details.)

  • Be in good standing (i.e., not in default) on any and all other federal student loans.

  • Selective Service is no longer a requirement for federal aid, however, it is a requirement if you are eligible for state aid for State aid. Federal Law requires nearly all male US citizens and male immigrants, 18 through 25, register with Selective Service. You may register here.

Eligibility for Stevens Undergraduate Aid

Stevens scholarships may have additional requirements. Be sure to review the different requirements for merit-based scholarships and need-based grants. All Stevens scholarship recipients who are returning students must meet the university’s requirements for Satisfactory Academic Progress in order to renew your scholarship.

Stevens financial aid is possible in large part due to the generous support of our alumni and friends. During your time at Stevens, you may learn that some or all the financial aid awards you receive are made possible through a named scholarship, established by our donor(s), to support our students. If so, you will be expected to thank the donor(s) for their support. At that time, a member of the Office of Development and Alumni Engagement team will be in touch with further information regarding this process.
