There is..  but  I don't remember what it is.  I DO remember that I managed to reach it, tho.  LOL
 
If you go on either the school's website or the fed's website you should be able to find the max amt based on school status.
 
(I topped out with undergrad funding while working on my MS, while not truly admitted to a graduate degree program -- just licensing only.)

From 700 in 2008 to 498 in 2012...
4/23/12 -- BK 13 date of filing EQ = 505
4/18/12 -- EQ 498
12/5/13 -- EQ 669
Here we go.... back on track.
