DL and financial aid
« on: December 28, 2004, 06:27:47 PM »
I read that during 1999, the Dept of Education said that universities with online courses and degree programs could give federal financial aid.

As a DL student, would I qualify for federal student loans or state grants?

I would think that your potential pool of sources would radically diminish for DL.

You could buy "The Law School Bible," by Peter Loughlin.

He has a whole section about financial aid for DL.

It's possible to get; the "universe" of alternatives just gets smaller than traditional.

Thanks,
