What is Title IV?

Title IV is a section of US law that authorizes funds for students to be able to attend college, typically called federal financial aid.

Some of the more common financial aid programs that are part of Title IV are the Pell Grant and the Direct Stafford Loan programs.

In order for students to receive Title IV aid funds, they must attend colleges that meet certain requirements, including accreditation from an approved agency, and that choose to participate in Title IV programs.
