The Pharm D. Program at the Brooklyn Campus
is six years in length, with both undergraduate and graduate
components. Because of this unique feature, the types of
financial aid funding change as a student’s academic
status moves from undergraduate to graduate. This brochure
is provided to clarify the types of financial aid that
are available to students for both the undergraduate and
the graduate portions of their program.
The first four years of this program are
considered undergraduate for financial aid purposes, and
all federal undergraduate assistance is applicable (Federal
SEOG, Federal SDS Grants, Federal Perkins Loans, Health
Professions Student Loans, Federal Work Study/America Reads,
and Federal Direct Student Loans). For New York State residents,
the Tuition Assistance Program (TAP) is also available.
In addition to these forms of financial
aid, undergraduate scholarships and grants funded by L.I.U.
are also available for up to eight terms of the undergraduate
phase of the Pharm D. Program (University Scholars Awards,
Presidential Scholarships, Provost’s Excellence Awards,
L.I.U., Academic Incentive, and Alumni Grants, Continuing
Student Scholars Awards, MLK/Jose Marti Awards, Dean’s
Awards, Dean’s Scholarship, etc).
Undergraduate financial aid and scholarship
awards are no longer available once a student advances
to the graduate portion of this program (generally after
the first four years). The higher borrowing levels in the
Federal Direct Student Loan Program become available, and,
for qualified students, the Graduate Excellence Award.
Students, who remain in undergraduate
status after four years in this program, are no longer
eligible for Federal Pell Grants, or for Federal SEOG Awards.
Other federal undergraduate awards may also be restricted.
