Financial Aid for more than one school

mmccddmmccdd 0 replies2 threads New Member
Hello everyone,

I have read that you can't receive more aid if you are already attending an institution, but with the internet comes doubt and I am not sure if what I read is entirely true.

So currently I'm attending a 4-year college majoring in Biology with the aspiration of getting into a doctorate fo chiropractic program. However, in the meantime I've had this passion for massage therapy and wanted to get licensed as a therapist. Most Massage therapy programs are north of 10K and I wouldn't be able to pay all of it out of pocket, at least not now. Would I be able to apply for aid if I want to attend a massage therapy school while also attending college ?

Thank you

    You can't get federal aid for two places. However if the massage therapy program has its own scholarship money to give out, go ahead and apply for that.

    Whether you would have time to pursue both programs simultaneously is a whole other thing.

    "Whether you would have time to pursue both programs simultaneously is a whole other thing."

    That is what I was wondering about also. At least when I was in university it seemed like something very close to a full time commitment. You don't want to get overloaded to the point that it impacts your grades.

    You can only get need based financial aid at one college or school at a time. Did you think you could get double the aid if you attended two programs? That’s definitely a no.
