Yes you can receive federal financial aid if you have a drug related felony (if) the crime was not committed while you were enrolled in school and receiving federal financial aid. If you've never received aid before or been in college, chances are you will be eligible. This statement is available the FAFSA website in the Faq's section. There is a big misunderstanding regarding eligibility for those who have committed this type of crime. When filling out the application, they are asking if you have been convicted of a crime while in school and receiving aid. You also cannot have been convicted after you complete your FAFSA or that may make you ineligible. So for those interested in furthering their education, just write or call them to get your questions answered.
Yes, you definitely can, provided you file your FAFSA and have not been convicted of a felony distribution charge. Many federal loan and grant programs are unavailable to felons who have been convicted of selling drugs, but there are still state programs that can help you fund your education.
I know a convicted felon ,charge can never be dropped of her record because its a class A felony. She got pal grant and student loan and lied on her application. When it asked about being a felon she answered no to the question. Is this ok to do?
If you have a convicted charge for possession of drugs, what grant can I apply for?
It can be expunged off the felons record after 7 yrs.
