Agency US Department of Education
Eligibility Institutions of higher education must meet both basic and specific eligibility requirements. A basic requirement is that an institution must be legally authorized by the state in which it is located to be a junior college or provide an educational program for which it awards a bachelor's degree; and be either accredited, pre-accredited, or making reasonable progress toward such accreditation by a nationally recognized accrediting agency or organization. Under specific eligibility requirements, an institution must have at least 50 percent of its degree students receiving need-based assistance under Title IV of the Higher Education Act, or have a substantial number of enrolled students receiving Pell Grants, and have low educational and general expenditures. The Secretary may waive the eligibility requirements under certain conditions which are defined in program regulations.
