Can you get financial aid for an 8 week certification course? It's 200 hours total and counts for 6 credit hours. I know you have to be enrolled at least part time and have at least 6 credit hours to qualify for aid. But what's considered a "part time student?" And would that count as "part time" since it's such a short course? Also, if you can't get financial aid for something like that, is there any other way of getting help to pay for it? TIA!

It's going to 100% depend on what the course is and where you are taking it. Call their business or financial aid office monday morning and ask. They can tell you.
