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.
- A student may receive aid when repeating a course that was previously failed (received a 0.0 or No Pass) multiple times.
- 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.
- 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.
- A course that is dropped is not considered an attempt for purposes of this policy.
