Certificate and Licensure Federal Aid Eligibility
Federal financial aid regulations make a distinction between licensure programs that provide an "initial teaching license" and programs that provide additional licenses.
This determines whether a program is subject to graduate or undergraduate enrollment requirements and borrowing limits for federal loans.
