Eligible Educational Institutions
An eligible educational institution is generally any accredited public, nonprofit, or private post-secondary institution eligible to participate in the student aid programs administered by the Department of Education. It includes virtually all accredited public, nonprofit, and privately owned profit-making post-secondary institutions. Taxpayers should contact the educational institution if they do not know if it is an eligible institution.
