Financial Aid

Repeat Course Policy for Financial Aid

Effective July 1, 2011, due to changes in federal regulations the Financial Aid Office is required to monitor and adjust a student’s enrollment level for Title IV aid if, or when, they repeat course work for credit that they have already earned.  Students can retake courses and receive federal aid if they had previously failed a course, but can only receive financial aid twice for a course that has been previously passed. A passing grade is defined as D- or better. Please note that the repeat course policy for financial aid is separate from institutional academic polices regarding repeat courses.

The policy allows a student to receive financial aid under the following situations:

  • To repeat any failed course until a passing grade is received. 
  • To repeat one time any course in which you previously received a passing grade

Please Note: Regardless of the outcome courses are not eligible to be covered by financial aid after a 2nd attempt has been made for a course that has at any time previously earned a passing grade.
