MA Financial Aid Criminal Problem

MA College and University Financial Aid Problem

If you are convicted of a drug crime in Massachusetts, it may disqualify you from receiving federal financial aid.  Most students that attend a Massachusetts’ college or university get some amount of financial aid.  If students lose their financial aid they may not be able to continue their education.

A law that was passed in 2000 suspends financial aid eligibility for students convicted of having or selling drugs.  The student could be convicted in either federal or state court.  If you are convicted of a first offense possession of drug charge, your financial aid will be suspended for one year from the date of conviction.  If you are convicted of a second offense possession of drug charge, your financial aid will be suspended for two years.  If you are convicted of a third offense possession of drug charge, your financial aid will be suspended indefinitely.

The amount of time that your financial aid will be suspended is longer if you are convicted of selling drugs.  If you are convicted of selling drugs as a first offense, your financial aid will be suspended for two years.  If you are convicted of selling drugs as a second offense, your financial aid will be suspended indefinitely.  It is possible to regain eligibility to financial aid sooner if you complete an approved drug rehabilitation program.
