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 coursework for credit that they have already earned. 

  • A student may receive aid when repeating a course for the first time.
  • A student may receive aid when repeating a course that was previously failed, regardless of the number of times the course was attempted and failed.
  • A student may receive aid to repeat a previously passed course one additional time.  For this purpose, a passing grade is defined as D- or better. 
  • If a student retakes a course that is not aid eligible, the credit hours will be excluded from the total enrollment for the semester. 
  • Students will receive an e-mail notification from our office if they are enrolled in a course that would need to be excluded from their eligible enrollment.
  • Not all aid will require an adjustment.  Click here for information on how your enrollment affects your financial aid.  

Please Note: This rule applies whether or not the student received aid for earlier enrollments in the course.
