Policy - 2nd Bachelor's Degree Students

2nd Bachelor’s Degree students will be considered for Federal Direct Stafford Loan eligibility (subject to annual and aggregate limits). They are not federally eligible for Pell Grants and there are no GW need-based institutional grants or scholarships available for these students.

We will certify credit based private alternative student loans for students who qualify with the lender. Parents of dependent undergraduate students may also apply for the Federal Direct Parent PLUS Loan.

See the How to Apply  and Assistance Types sections of our website for more information about how to apply or details on federal loans.
