Hello, I was curious if you could receive financial aid for two graduate programs simultaneously. I have a BA and an MA and am currently in doctoral program as well. If I get into an MA while in another graduate program, can I get aid? If so, and let's assume I have hit my Stafford loan limits (though I have not), could Grad Plus loans be used to pay for the MA program?

Thanks.

I don't think it's possible unless they are simultaneous degrees at the same institution, and even then I'm not sure. You'll get a definitive answer if you ask the financial aid officer at the school(s) you're getting your degrees from. You can also ask the Department of Education directly as well.
