Anyone get federal loans for an informal post-bacc? My school basically told me your SOL, but that doesn't seem right?

It seems like I should qualify for some kind of federal loans?

Generally you need to be degree-seeking to get federal aid. Some schools will support a "5th year postbac" designation which gets some federal aid, but not full COA.

Some people apply for a 2nd bachelors to get better access to funding. Some people get an on-campus job that comes with tuition & registration benefits.

Best of luck to you.
