If you have a permanent disability, you may be able to apply for an extension to the number of years you can apply for loans. You may also be eligible for full-time student loans if you are only taking 40% of a full course load. In order to be eligible for the exemption you are required to submit a "Medical Assessment for Student Assistance Form" with your application. The medical form confirms that your permanent disability prevents you from attending school on a full-time basis. To get a "Medical Assessment for Student Assistance Form" you can contact our office and request one or download it from our web site. Click here for more information.
