Everyone knows that a receiving a college degree is the genesis to finding a good job.  As such, more kids are competing to enter the best schools in the country.  In turn, the rising cost of higher education has put a great strain on students to take out federal loans.

In order to receive a federal student loan, you need to be in good legal standing. If you are convicted of certain drug charges, you will not be eligible to receive Federal Student Aid. For example, if you have been convicted of the selling or possession of illegal drugs, and it was a state or federal offense that occurred after you were 18 years old and the conviction remains on your record, you may not be eligible to receive Federal Student Aid.
