    The following comment from a user on Prisontalk sums it up best:

    There are three situations which could render a person ineligible to receive any Federal Student Aid:
    1. Not a US citizen
    2. Defaulted on a previous student loan
    3. Convicted of a felony drug crime while enrolled as a student, and while receiving federal student aid money.

    1. Your felony conviction is not drug-related, or
    2. Your felony drug conviction happened while you were NOT a student, or
    3. Your felony drug conviction happened while you were a student, but during a time in which you were not using Title IV money (if you paid for your classes using cash or private scholarships).
