Federal Loans and Grants 

Your eligibility for federal financial aid programs is partially dictated by the pharmacy institution you attend and how the institution classifies its program (undergraduate professional or graduate professional). Colleges and schools have the ability to set the classifications of their students based upon their own student population, institutional policies, and year of enrollment. Contact the institution directly to determine what federal programs you are eligible.
