    Does Aid Eligibility End? 

    • Syracuse University grants and scholarships have time limits--four or five years depending on your program of study. 
    • Other types of  aid (Federal Pell, TEACH, SEOG, Work-Study, Direct and Perkins Loans) have a set number of years of student eligibility.
    • Once all degree requirements are met, federal aid eligibility ends.
    • The Financial Aid Office is required to monitor your academic progress as you work toward your degree to determine continued aid eligibility.
    • Read more about renewing aid and academic progress requirements, or speak with your financial aid counselor today.
