Financial Aid and Repeats
Federal financial aid regulations limit the number of times a student may repeat a course and receive financial aid for that course.  The following guidelines apply to students eligible for federal aid.

  1. A student may receive aid when repeating a course that was previously failed (received a 0.0 or No Pass) multiple times.
  2. Once a student passes a class, they can only receive aid for retaking that course one additional time, regardless of the grade earned for that additional attempt. Any subsequent attempts will not be eligible for aid.
  3. If a student retakes a course that is not aid eligible, a recalculation of aid is done to exclude the credits for the repeated course.  Students are notified by the Office of Financial Aid if their aid needs to be reduced.
  4. A course that is dropped is not considered an attempt for purposes of this policy.
