Will I Keep Financial Aid for Pet Grooming School if Convicted of a Crime?

If a student that has been awarded financial aid has been convicted on the federal or state level with the possession of illegal drugs, by the requirement of the Higher Education Act of 1964, financial aid must be suspended. This is only required when it has been proven that the drugs were in possession of the duration of time that financial aid was available to that student. Eligibility for students that have been convicted of such crimes can be reactivated once two unexpected administered drug tests receive a passing score. Drug tests must be administered to the standards of the criteria set by the United States Department of Education.Qualification Requirements for Florida’s #1 Pet Grooming School Those that have been convicted of sexual offenses are ineligible to receive federal Pell grants even if incarceration and forced community commitments have been completed by the requirements from the Florida Department of Law Enforcement.
